Once we had the soil and seeds into the cups (and had cleaned up the dozen or so cups knocked over by Girl Wonder #2 in her attempts to plant seeds), it was time to water and move them inside. We like using the plastic cups so we can better watch the moisture levels of the soil. The cup on the left is fully watered while the cup on the right needs some watering.
As we water the cups with our Moo Poo Tea, we put them in these cardboard trays we’ve been saving from our trips to Costco. These will also work well during harvest time for carrying our heavy, lush veggies into the house.
Once the cups are watered and in place, I wrap the sides and top with plastic wrap. This creates a greenhouse-type effect to hold in needed moisture and heat to help the seeds get started. This box is going on top of our fridge where it can be warmed from the bottom and get good, direct light from our kitchen lights. We still have about 6-8 weeks before our last frost date, which is when these seedlings will get transplanted.
