A New Season of Winter Sowing

It’s finally here!

Yet another season of winter sowing. If you’re not familiar with winter sowing, a quick search of either this blog or my YouTube channel will definitely yield some results. Winter sowing has quickly become one of my favorite gardening techniques. In fact, I’ve tried (with mostly success) to use the winter sowing technique with nearly every kind of plant that I grow. Obviously, hard to germinate seeds like perennial flowers are most beneficial – but it’s nice to be able to start things like lettuce and kale early, too.

Being that I have absolutely no space in my tiny house, and that I don’t have any spare cash to buy some grow lights – my backyard will soon begin looking like a sea of two-litre soda bottles and milk jugs. While I’ve been planting five or six bottles of seeds every single day, I’ve still got a LOT of work to do before I’m near finished.

Since it’s still early in the season, my main focus right now revolves around sowing the seeds that are most cold tolerant. Cold tolerance may mean many different things depending upon where you live. Here in zone 6b/7, that means perennial herbs and flowers – as well as some annuals like cabbages, onions, and broccoli.

If you’re interested in winter sowing. I encourage you to check out my YouTube channel, as I’m making a video focused on winter sowing every day this month! I hope that you’re having a great day!
