For tiny seeds, we use a dial seed sower, $1.98 from Pinetree seeds.  It
works really well for seeding cells in flats, and Paul uses it with a large
opening to seed mesclun in the tunnels.  We transplant almost everything
(except beans, corn and a FEW others) to get a headstart on weeds.  This
very simple, inexpensive tool has allowed us spend a lot less time thinning
flats.  Here's the URL:
