Seed-Starting, Day One

I finally -- at least a couple of weeks later than I'd intended -- got started on my 2008 garden today. My new adjustable Grow Light system arrived and I set it up more than a week ago. Finally today, with spring breathing most delightfully down my neck, I got out an old seed-starting tray, filled about half of the cells with potting soil (I know, a lighter-weight medium is often recommended, but I had it on hand...), and planted a modest number of seeds for four varieties of tomatoes, one type of pepper, two basils and some zinnias. I will keep the soil moist, helped by some plastic wrap which I removed for the photo, and should start to see some babies popping up in one to two weeks.
