Although I hate to wish the time away (seriously, January just flew by) you all know how much I’m longing for spring.
I can’t do ANYTHING outside right now. And though I’ve set up a pretty neat indoor grow station (more on that another day), it’s still too early to actually plant anything in it. But all is not lost…
Remember the Winter Sow method?
But this year, we aren’t going anywhere, and I’ve got LOTS of seeds to work with!!!
My little tin seed holder is filled to the gills!!!
This year is a little bit of an experiment. You’re supposed to use milk jugs, pop bottles, things like that. But I don’t have any of those. I had a cider jug, and an empty windshield washer jug, but I’m also trying out a few other types of containers, including a couple jujube containers and a rostisserie chicken tub.
I planted up some scabiosa, oriental poppies, coneflowers, black-eyed susans, and delphiniums.
They are now out in the frosty fresh air, and with any luck, come spring, we’ll see some wee little sprouts!
If you’d like to learn more about winter sowing, here’s where I learned about it.
