Breaking free of cabin fever!

February 12, 2008 is the date I will remember as the start of my winter sowing experiment.  I’ve spent most of my “free” time – time in front of the TV or sick time – making mini greenhouses for a winter sowing project.  It was fully intended to begin in mid-December, but sickness and other more pressing projects got in the way.  Anyway, on February 12 I was able to get five mini flats out in the snow.  They were Coral Nymph Salvia, Dolce Petunia, White Daisy, Soapwort, and an unknown veggie (seed looks like broccoli seed).  We’ll see what happens.  I hope they do well.
