How funny -- I was looking at those less than an hour ago at Home Depot here in Portland. Let me know how it works. Looks a lot easier than starting plants in soil in pots, and probably a lot more reliable/predictable.

I currently have some of these sprouting in my kitchen! I love 'em. Just be careful when transplanting the plants - if you do it straight from inside to outside they will shrivel up and die...when it is time to go in the garden, take them outside first for small periods of time and gradually increase the time outside for a few days before you plant them. Hope that makes sense.

The kids will love seeing how quickly the seeds come up with this! So fun.

That's gotta be so fun getting your garden all set up and ready. I was just trying to figure out what to put in my tiny little plot for flowers. I'm excited to have some room to grow something.

I have some waiting in the garage. I bought them in January, but soon discovered they'd be better used during the summer to prepare for our fall/winter garden. Still trying to get the hang of the "seasons" down here.
Have fun!

How exciting I honestly can't wait to get my boxes done so I can get started!
