Step 1:

Materials...
  -Your choice of seeds
  -Plastic sandwich bag
  -Cotton balls
  -Masking Tape

Step 2:

Moisten 2-3 cotton balls.  Then place them in the bottom of your plastic baggie.

Step 3:

Take a few seeds, and gently lay them on each cotton ball.  You can choose to grow one seed type or a variety.

Step 4:

If using a variety of seeds, I would suggest labeling them.  If not, skip to step 5.

Step 5:

Seal your plastic bag, and tape it to a window that gets a lot of sun

Step 6:

Now, just wait for your plants to grow!  When you are ready to plant, you can transfer the entire cotton ball, roots, and seed into the soil.
