This year will be my very first try and starting seeds indoor. I can't wait...although, I truly feel I don't what I am doing! LOL. I have the light fixture, I have seeds and flats. The light fixture is movable (up and down on a chain). I also have a heat mat...am I prepared or what??? :)

Thanks for great information! I am armed and ready to jump in. Wish me luck :D

You are prepared! You're going to have a blast. It's so exciting to see those first sprouts unfurl their leaves... BTW, don't be dismayed if the first leaves don't look "right." Those are cotyledons, aka "nurse leaves." Tomato seedlings, for example, don't look or smell like tomato plants until they get a few more leaves. :-)
