I have never had any success starting seeds indoors. I don’t know if they don’t get enough light or if I just started with such a lack of knowledge that they were bound to fail!
So this year I decided to try a method called “winter sowing”. You basically make a mini greenhouse out of a pop bottle or milk jug. Then you place them outside and let nature take care of the rest. Because it works like a greenhouse, heat traps from the sun keeping plants warm and watering the plant through condensation.
How-To: Milk Jug (sorry no pics)
You need a jug and scissors.
Cut the jug leaving an inch or two attached as a hinge. Cut below the handle but not much lower.
Then you plant!!
