The week 4 update is a little early, but I probably won’t have internet access for the next few days – so I wanted to get these posted now! All of the seedlings below have been planted using the winter sowing method in milk jugs. Let me know if you’ve got any questions, much love!

Wow, everything is looking great! So I’m in zone 6a New England. I was wondering, do you plant these in milk jugs and keep them outside or are these containers inside? Hoping to sow seeds next week when I get back from vacation 🙂
Outside. I plant the containers and then put them outside and let nature takeover. I’m pretty certain I made a post about container prep a few weeks back. If not, there’s definitely a video for it on my you tube channel. I make sure to do flowers that are cold tolerant first, like poppies larkspur etc. I wait longer for tender annuals like zinnias. Perennials are also perfect for sowing this way. My containers have been exposed to cold and even been covered in snow a few times and are doing awesome 🙂 I’m in zone 6b. Hope I was able to help! 🙂
I’m so happy for you!! I don’t drink much milk and didn’t have the containers, what else could be used? I bought the Buffy boots, very nice
I’m seriously excited for a new season! I’ve had enough winter 🙂 there’s tons of containers you can use. It’s almost embarrassing – my yard looks like someone threw garbage everywhere! I’m using milk jugs, soda bottles, takeout containers, those aluminum cake pans with the clear lids, juice jugs, strawberry containers. I’ve even seen people online use zip lock bags, but that seems like it could be a pain to move around. Anything that’s clear and that you can add drainage to and an opening for ventilation at the top. It may not be a pretty sight now, but starting seeds this way has been so much easier for me. Especially since I don’t have a place to start seeds. My boots have definitely gotten a good breaking in! They survived their first basement flood the other day when we got all that rain! Lol! Nice hearing from you! Hope you’re having a great day!
Thanks!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 Hope you’re having a great day!
