Do you have a favorite way to start seeds indoors? Since this was my first time, I used a seed starting kit (like this) but the peat pellets have tended to dry out pretty fast. I like the idea of making pots out of newspaper, so maybe I'll try that next time. I've been eyeing this tool that would make it even easier.
Of the seeds I've started indoors, the snow peas and the tomatoes have done the best. I repotted the tomatoes once their second set of leaves showed up, and spent last week hardening off the snow peas and then transplanting them into the garden. But my broccoli seedlings are spindly and weak; I'll be happy if even one of them turns out well.
Other progress, from seeds sowed directly outside: the radishes are doing well, and carrot and lettuce seedlings are just starting to peek up, and so is a stalk from a buried garlic clove. It's starting to look like a garden instead of just a barren box of soil, and that's a wonderful thing.
