What you need...
Little baggies (ziplocs work great too)
Planting soil (make sure its free of chemicals)
In each bag, place a little soil, then a few seeds, sprinkle a little water and zip them close. Hang a line, and overlap the baggies a little and secure them with a clothes pin.
I usually tie the string loosely so I won't wrestle with knots when I need to move them inside.
The clothes pins are fun to decorate or use as labels!
This is simple, fun and the kids love to help!
You'll start to see them sprouting, and when they are big enough, and the freeze isn't a threat anymore, move them to bigger pots and planters! Use the clothes pins (if you labeled them) and clip them on the side of the pots so you know whats growing. And don't throw away the bags--you can use them again.
