THIS WEEK, reader Sheila sent me the following note: Hi Kevin, I tried winter-sowing this year after reading all of your inspiring articles. So far, I have 21 gallon containers that have sprouted. I am SOOO excited! Well, Sheila, your words are music to my ears! Who else has winter-sowing news to report?
My update: Thanks to below-”normal” temperatures this month, only my tenacious spinach and hyssop have sprouted outdoors in their milk-jug containers. But I’m not worried. The January-planted Coreopsis and other perennials and hardy annuals are simply waiting for warmer weather to arrive. April, perhaps?
So what’s sprouting in your winter-sowing containers? I look forward to reading your updates.
