We went out and bought 3 long grow lights to set them up on a shelf system. I have three levels of growing space this way and its contained in one small space. Starting seeds is easy. Its important to factor in temp and humidity. I set my lights up in my bathroom. It usually stays pretty warm and humid in their so I figure this is a great place to start my seeds. I ordered a bunch of heirloom tomato seeds as well as organic or heirloom bell pepper, jalapeno, basil, dill, chamomile, rosemary, mint, lemon balm, and echinacea. I got my seeds planted in pots and labeled. Now I just have to wait for the first little sprouts to appear.
