Last weekend (April 4) I started tomatoes (Red Siberian and Yellow Pear) from my own saved seed, cucurbits (Luffa and Waltham squash), and a few days later started chard (Fordhook giant) and Elana's cherry tomatoes under lights. Planted some of each in sterile seed starter mix (after bleaching out the pots) and potting soil (Miracle Gro Moisture Control). Planted 2-3 seeds in each small container, and 5 or so in each 4" container (except the Luffa, only 3 per 4" container). The tomatoes and cucurbits are on a heating pad that goes off at night with the lights.
