Quick seed starting question  RSS feed

Real quick, a silly question:
I have a bunch of seeds I soaked, mostly greens like lettuce and broccoli. I know broccoli specifically isn't meant to be started and transplanted but I could I do that? Would I have to wait until it's reasonably sized before planting it? My gardening space isn't prepped yet but I need to do something with these seeds like now. Haha, I planned really poorly.
I was hoping to plant them in a shallow dish (think to go plastic containers) and move the sprouts to the actually bed. I know leafy greens tend to root shallow so I was hoping this would accommodate the sprouts.

Sounds good to me... Don't overwater them, and make sure that they get sufficient sunlight without scorching. Placing them against a wall where they only get morning sunlight is nice.
