Before it got so darned cold this week and the snow started flying I decided to try my hand at some winter sowing. The Queen of winter sowing, Monica at Garden Faerie's Musings has begun her winter sowing. Kylee at Our Little Acre has her BLUE POPPIES potted up. I feel I am in good company with my first shot at Winter Sowing.
A comfortable day for this experiment. The sun was shining and it was almost 40 degrees. A perfect day for working outside. I gathered up all the items I needed for this project. One gallon milk jugs, potting soil (I had this on hand), seeds, duct tape, wine cork screw. No, not to open the wine but to punch holes in the bottom of the milk jugs for drainage, which I did.
Now it is the waiting game. Waiting to see if this experiment works. The seeds that need to be frozen are certainly getting the treatment now. The wind is swirling and the temperatures dropping. Below zero is expected so here is hoping. Are you doing any winter sowing this year??
