    Thanks from me too, Wendy! I lost the site and couldn’t find it and I don’t have the patience to grow through everything to get to it. LOL

    Thought I would add the tread on information on seed explaining some of the terms used in catalogs when giving information about seed.

    Happy New Seed Starting Year 2012

    Hard to believe a year has gone by already.   Thanks to Bette for starting this thread for 2010. 

    Note for all of you who have not used this thread before, there are dozens of links in this thread to other great threads on this board all to do with seed starting.  Unfortunately, the links to some of the pictures are gone now. :(

    O.K. Now I am really excited about seed starting…Started painting my shelves yesterday, and hopefully will finish today…but I don’t know when I will start planting….probably not until late February, I think.

    Thank you for all the info Everyone!

    I am going to print it and make a notebook from it…I still like paper!!!

    I read thru some of this thread yesterday…..then last night as I was filling my Keurig coffeemaker with water so it is ready for a.m. coffee I had an epiphany.  I have been cutting the little individual coffee cups open after use and saving the grounds to put in composter……then it hit me….they are perfect for seed starting…as they have a little hole it the bottom that is punched by the machine when coffee is brewed and I was cutting the top off anyway to save the grounds! I am going to experiment and see how they do.

    Found yet another seed planting tray by accident.  Am saving gallon milk jugs to use as mini greenhouses over a few tomatoes and pepper to get them in the garden early so I cut the bottom out of them.  The bottom would make great starter trays with a few holes punched in the bottom of them.

    I do have a few of the oblong planters I use during the summer, will see what else I have in my stash of pots. Last year I planted enough to give my son a few.

    I’m saving the tall plastic drink glasses you get at McDonald’s, etc. for my tomato plants but have to figure out what I can set them in so they won’t fall over easily. Whenever I use any kind of plastic glasses or cups I always knock them over.

    Do you have an empty plastic window box  – is what I use to keep containers from being knocked over.  But this is when I’m winter sowing a number of  containers – don’t know how many tomato plants you are planning on.
