I got two 48" x 20" heat mats, seed trays with plastic domes, and a light. I was trying to decide what kind of light bulbs to get and ended up getting one cool bulb and one plant bulb.
For the soil I used Ferry Morse Seed Starter Mix. I'm sure its cheaper to make my own mix, but I had this on hand.
Filled up the seed trays and planted seeds..
On the seed planting list is broccoli, cauliflower, leeks, onions, parsley, cabbage, and head lettuce.
I also started a spreadsheet to keep track of the seeds I plant and how they do, so I can learn what works and what doesn't.
Now its time to be patient, have faith in a seed, and expect wonders!
