Materials checklist

Set up a workspace for starting seeds 

It can be indoors, or out on a sheltered patio or porch. Cover the table with newspapers or a vinyl cloth. Fill a wheelbarrow or bucket with packaged seed-starting mix (you'll need at least 6 quarts per person). Moisten the mix so it's damp.
