Hi, everyone. I have been growing some of my own food in an outdoor garden since 2011 , but this year, I decided I want to sprout my seeds indoors under lights. I have a sprouting tray, a grow light fixture, grow light bulb, old egg cartons, and seeds to start. I know I need to sprout the seeds 6 weeks before the last frost (April 10th by the Farmer’s Almanac). I usually wait for a few days at least after that, as we have been known to get surprise frosts. What kind of soil do I use for starting seeds indoors like this? Do you have any other hints to help out an indoor sprouting newbie?
I would love to just put the trays near a window instead of under grow lights, but my furball cats love to dig in the dirt and would destroy them.
Thanks in advance.
