Ciao all-

I finally got around to sowing my alliums, celery, coleus, spicy micro greens, and cat grass yesterday. The laundry room is where I start my seeds and it's still in disarray, but there's now movement in changing the situation. Every year, I say I'm going to be much better with washing out cups and inserts so that I don't have piles of dishes to do in February, but it just never happens. As soon as I get everything planted outside, there are other demands like weeding that keep me very busy.

ArleneB, I was very fortunate to get some seeds for Miss Willmott's Ghost Sea Holly and I don't want to mess it up. If I were to start those seeds in our wine cellar which is roughly -4C to 0C right now, would that work? I don't have any lights in there, though. I also got some Clematis seeds and I have no idea how to start those.

This has been a very cold winter so far, even for us. I'm going to hold off sowing any of my Asian brassicas for another 2 weeks and shoot for the week after St. Patrick's Day to transplant outside with a heavy plastic cover over the bed. I have enough seed that I may try direct-sowing a row or 2 just to see how that works.
Grazie a tutti,
Julianna
