Containers for Starting Seeds

You can be really creative when finding containers to start your seeds. The only requirements are that the container is sterilized, and there are drainage holes in the bottom. I generally just use seed starting trays that I purchase at the garden store, I like to use the larger 3X3 cells so I can allow my plants to grow larger in case the weather isn't quite ready for transplanting.
Here are some suggestions for creative containers you can find around your home:

Make sure to sterilize with a diluted bleach solution (1 part bleach to 9 parts water), and to poke several holes in the bottom of your container for proper drainage!
