And So It Begins...
This past weekend, I finally got around to sowing the first seeds for 2011. I must admit that up until now, I'd been struggling to get motivated. Then it hit me that February was here, which meant that March was just around the corner. My anxiety ended up winning out over my laziness.
I started a few cells of scallions, several varieties of lettuce, celery and spinach. I also soaked some artichoke seeds for a day and then placed them in a plastic container lined with some damp paper towels. Hopefully they'll sprout in a week or so. I had success starting them this way last year and fingers crossed it will work again this year.
I also started a couple trays of white stemmed mini bok choy. These will be harvested as microgreens. I figured that since the hoop house was half buried in snow right now, these greens will help tie us over until the winter warms u a bit.
Now that the spring gardening underway, I'm looking forward to doings more. How is your seed starting going?
