Is anyone else gearing up for their spring garden? I'm getting seedlings started now. I'm so excited!

Nope! I wish I had the time and space for a garden. Actually, I was supposed to plant tomatoes this winter but life got in the way. I wonder if it's too late now this year.

No we are still covered with snow. I can't grow seedlings in my house. The only places with lots of sun are were are radiators and the heat kills them.

You can use grow lights. That's what I have to do.

Totally understand about life getting in the way!

I will be shopping for large Begonia bulbs ext week!! I always get my hanging baskets, fill them with soil and three begonias each on the 1st of March. They will be huge and amazing in 6 weeks or so.

Nice to see your post! I never do seeds inside, what are your tricks??

Sounds beautiful!!

I'm not very good at starting seeds indoors but I use grow lights and this year I got a heating mat and hoping that will help.

Yes - but I'm torn on if we should even start. We're looking to move soon. I use the outdoor / water jug seedling system.

So I could bring the jugs with me but we wouldn't move until June at the SOONEST! So..

It's hard to decide. I delayed for a long time when we were wanting to move. Can you tell me more about the jug system you do? Do you cover them or move them inside at night?
