Save those deli platters. They make great mini greenhouses. Place your starter trays on the platter.and place the dome lid over them. Water from the platter.  Lift top on hot days to let air circulate.  Place in good overhead light from plant light or sunny window.When seedlings are read to go outside acclimate them right in the platters. After awhile you can plant them directly into the ground continuing to use  the top as a cold frame cover and prop up with a brick on warm days.  The addition of a row cover will make it even warmer. Works great.
