Planting seedlings in a store bought tray

E picked out a seed starting tray that already had dirt in it to do in addition to our wintersow and other starting containers. Usually we just recycle pots and other containers, but not this time. The nice thing is that you don't seem to get as much dirt everywhere. This is just a run of the mill set we picked up at the dollar store, but you can find them anywhere.

First we watered a little bit, and pressed the dirt down some since in some spots the dirt was pretty high and we wanted a well watered start.

Then we used then eraser end of a pencil to poke holes in the soil to place our seeds in.

Then we placed the seeds in the holes. Here is a pic of some sprouted peas we put in since you can see it much better.

Lastly we covered the seeds and watered again.

We will post updates soon, as we did this a couple of weeks ago and some seeds have sprouted. Have you started anything yet?
