I had planned this post for early this week, but I have been sick for a few days… so now I’m posting it today! I had hoped to start my winter sowing by now, but it will have to wait until the weekend. The weather has taken a sharp turn towards spring over the last few days, and it’s making me feel like I’m way far behind.
Don’t panic, there’s still plenty of time to start your winter sowing here in Minnesota! Last night, I dug the winter sowing container stash out of the garage and started cleaning them.
As I mentioned in a previous post about types of winter sowing containers, my favorite types of containers are the ones that will survive the dishwasher. This makes cleaning them a much easier task!
For the non-dishwasher safe containers, I soak them in the sink with soapy water and wash them by hand. With winter sowing, you don’t have to worry about disinfecting them as well as you do with indoor sowing.
I can’t wait for this weekend!
