Hello! I am very happy to find this community now. I am just starting to get into vegetable gardening, and in the interests of cutting costs, I want to start nearly everything from seeds.

From left to right, I have Kale, Serrano Peppers (which haven't sprouted- I'm not sure of they will), and Swiss Chard.

Starting on the left, I have the Swiss Chard, Spinach, Cilantro (which is also not sprouting), and Collards, which is doing so well I can't believe it!!).

Here are some chives starting.

Some basil.

I'm so excited that most of my seeds are actually sprouting, but I am worried that I will kill them all in the next step. I plan to keep them all in containers for the whole time, but as I said, this is all new to me, so we'll see.

I started all of the greens in Jiffy Brand Peat Pellets. However, I was wondering if there is a cheaper way to start seeds. Would it be possible to make pellets?

Thanks again for starting this community!
