Seed Starting for Summer

 How's that for alliteration?
I had an idea for starting seeds efficiently - I would fill a large flat tray with potting soil and just cover each seed grouping with a labeled glass container, then transplant the starts that germinated to Dixie cups (cheap, somewhat compost-able containers).  Well, it turns out that's the most efficient way to breed gnats.
So today, whether germinated or no, all seeds were transplanted to labeled Dixie cups.  We have several types of heirloom tomatoes and peppers, herbs, and squashes (many gifts from Paige at Love Sown). With the weather we've been having here in East Texas, you'd think it was spring already!
