  • My Christmas present this year was a great little seed starting kit equipped with a tray, green house top and heated mat. The heated mat is the special treat.

    In the past, the seed tray would sit in the not-so-convenient spot in front of the refrigerator where the heat escapes at the bottom. I am very excited about this new source of heat; I have had entire trays of peppers fail because the soil wasn’t warm enough.
