Welcome Spring! My wife, the gardening goddess, wanted to start onions and spinach. The soil outside is solid as a rock, so the seeds will have to be planted in the house.
My sand and water table, having a 24″x36″ plastic tub, is perfect to start seedlings, provided an appropriate light source can be added. I built a frame to suspend two 40 inch shop lights above it. I built the frame tall enough that it could be used to suspend other things.
The lights are about 6 inches above the plants.
