Curious what type of soil/mix you used to start your seeds?

This year I used Miracle-Gro seed starting potting mix. Last year I bought a seed starting mix from a greenhouse supply site. I think it actually worked better than the miracle-gro but couldn't find it this year.

After the first true leaves are established you can start fertilizing but only with a weak mix....maybe half rate or less.

I went with a pure organic mix that must have had slap nothing nutritious in I ended up having to buy some heirloom tomato plants from a lady locally. This was my first year trying this; live and learn.
