Sowing Your the Winter?

As Gardeners we have a long down time during the winter... staring out the window, looking at the blanket of snow over our garden, and waiting for spring so we can plant seeds indoors in plant trays.

The wait seems endless.

Well.... here is a little project that will take away the winter blues for a day or two.

Winter sowing! Once the native seeds we ordered have arrived, we can sow them right away.

What we need:

  1. A few plastic containers (re-using!) that are mostly clear enough to let the sun through. Plastic jugs, pop, or water bottles that the tops can be cut off and then taped back on or, in my case, old food containers that I want to repurpose.
