Starting seeds indoors.
What you need:
What to do:
1. Fill cups about 3/4 full with potting soil. Plant seeds according to package directions, and sprinkle with water.
2. Place cups on a sunny windowsill. Check soil daily, and water when dry.
3. When seedlings produce their first set of adult leaves, they can be gradually moved outdoors (called "hardening off"). Place seedlings in a shady spot for a few hours a day and bring them in at night. After several days, place them in a sunny spot, but continue to bring them in at night. When the temperatures are warm enough, transplant seedlings into the garden.
