Ive slowed down on winter sowing this week because I’ve been busy planting the cold weather vegetable seedlings. The timing worked out great because I was almost out of containers. I was able to wash and reuse the containers from the seedlings I planted for some of the seeds I sowed this week.
We’ve had below freezing temperatures the last few nights so I covered everything, including my sprouting winter sown containers. As far as I can tell, everything survived just fine.
Here’s a list of what I winter sowed this week…
|Winter sown containers|
- Cinnamon Basil
- Lemon Basil
- Sweet Basil
- Scarlet Queen Zinnia
- Zinnia mix
- Candy Cane Zinnia
- Oklahoma Pink Zinnia
- Polar Bear Zinnia
- Purple Basil
That’s 10 more containers for me, making my total for this season 143. I think I’m done, but there may be a few more stragglers. We’ll see.
At this point, most of my containers are sprouting.
