Yep, at least a version of winter sowing, as I perceive it. We're still experiencing overnight lows in the lower twenties, soil temps of course, are very low, and the veggie garden is too wet, so I've *taken off running* and started all of these under plastic. The lettuce, spinach, peas and others that don't transplant well are in paper sack planters set in a tray, and covered with clear, vented bags.
I'm hoping that this will give them an earlier start, then when conditions improve I can plop them, paper bag and all, into the garden. In years past it's always too hot by the time I can get seeds in and germinated to actually enjoy cool season crops.....so we'll try it this way.
If I've made things more complicated than necessary, at least I enjoyed the time spent!
Yeah, keep on planting!! I plan to ..... hey, remind me sometime in June to start some pansies....I always forget!! Luv to see those babies peeking out on winter days when some of the snow melts! I've had some bloom all winter long before.
