I picked up some seeds from a GV  last year at Rogers. The pods for brocolinis and bok choy looked the same so I am not sure which one was which.

I was told by the local community garden to soak seeds overnight. The seeds were soaking in the plastic cup overnight. This morning I only had to tip the content in the pots underneath. Labels are chalkboard style. Pots are filled with pebbles and potting mix.  

I am not having much luck with seeds but might as well use up what I have left. Trying all sorts of methods. The vermiculite did not work with beans
