Hi Bev,

I successfully cooked my dirt in the oven and then placed it in the 
containers I was going to use.  By the way, some frozen dinners have great 
containers for starting seeds AND they are microwavable.  Only drawback is 
that the seedlings must be watered more frequently once uncovered, and 
transplanted earlier than seedlings started in deeper containers.

Good Luck!
