This week, I’ve sown some beans and more annuals. I thought I was done with my vegetables for this season…but get this, I can’t believe it but I forgot to get broccoli and cauliflower seeds!!!
Those are always my first containers to sprout and I kept wondering why they weren’t sprouting yet…dah! I’m kind of mad at myself because now I can’t compare the date my first container sprouted (broccoli) from last year to this year. Oh well, off to the store to buy some seeds. I will be sowing them ASAP too.
Here is what I’ve sown this week…
|Winter Sowing Containers|
- Pole Bean mix
- Romano Pole Bean
- Lima Bean
- Asparagus Bean
- Jiminez Bean
- Blue Lake Bean
- KY Wonder Pole Bean
- Morning Glory deep blue
- Sunflower Tall Sungold
- Spilanthes (Eyeball Plant)
- White Butterfly Weed
- Motherwort Leonurus cardiaca
- Petunia mix
- Canderia Radio Extra
- Basil Genovese
That’s 16 more containers for a total of 87 so far this season! I still have more to go too, at least one more round of containers to sow.
The total number of containers sown by YOU so far is up to 283 – how cool is that!?! I’ll continue to keep track through the end of April, so keep those numbers coming.
It’s hard to believe that less than two weeks ago, those containers in the picture above were covered by snow!
In other news… some of my containers have sprouts!!!! So far, I have 5 containers sprouting… including kohlrabi, lettuce, collards and rutabaga.
