There are many nifty ways to start your seeds; egg-shells, egg cartons, seed trays, jiffy pots, etc... However, Giant pumpkin seeds are very big and grow very fast, so they will not be hanging around in their first containers very long. This step makes transplanting easy on you and the baby GIANT as well. Using 2 large plastic party cups; label the outside cup with what specific seed you are using it for (fancy pants seeds...if you are using regular seeds you can skip the labeling) that way you don't lose track of what is growing in each one. Cut the very bottom off of the second cup and cut it top to bottom so it resembles an ugly plastic armband/bracelet/cuff. Place the cut cup inside the labeled cup and you are ready for soil and seeds.
