So in the depths of February, in the worst of the cold, I got a Burpee’s enewsletter with free seed shipping. You can imagine what happened next. I mean, I pretty much had SAD at that point.
I’ve not done seed starting before because of space considerations, and what light I have available. So this is a total experiment, but after this past winter, I needed to do something like this as soon as I could.
I’ve started lacinto kale, chiogga beets, Swiss chard, carrots (yes, I know you’re not supposed to transplant those, but I don’t care), nasturtiums, sorrel and cilantro. All but the lacinto kale, I can also get as seedlings, or direct sow, so if this doesn’t work out, it won’t be the end of the world. But if it does, I have a nice start on the season, and a couple of things (or at least varieties) I wouldn’t otherwise have been able to grow.
