Step Six: Sow Seeds

   Lighting the fuse of life

When seeds are swollen, they are ready to be planted into peat cup. I use a wooden skewer I got from the local grocery store to dig a nice neat little hole (no bigger than a quarter of an inch diameter) one half inch deep right where I want to plant the seeds. Spin the skewer to make the opening at the top a little wider. Then take a metal spoon and capture one seed at a time from the soaking container, tilting the spoon on the side to drain the excess peroxide/water solution. Use the skewer to nudge it off the spoon into a specific hole. Sow at half an inch down, using the tip of the skewer to gently cover with loose soil very gently tapping the top to make sure the soil is not too loose that rain might expose the seed.
