Seed Starting With a Rain Gutter

Over the years we have shown you several methods for starting seeds. Jennifer built a great seed starting rack with lights to start her seeds. 


Cousin Allen did something similar using a prebuilt rack and fluorescent lights.


 
We planted ours in used plastic cups, yogurt cups, and peat pots and put them in the window.


This year we tried something different. We put all of our seeds in a rain gutter in our windows. It worked great and turned out to be an easy way to bottom water all of the plants at once. Check out the video below to see what it looks like.


What are some of the methods you have used to successfully start your seeds indoors?

How great to see all that green when there's snow coming down outside! Hope you will update us soon and that all is well with you and yours.
