Welcome to another edition of our monthly gardening feature. As we're heading into February, a lot of us are excitedly gathering our seeds and possibly even getting seeds started indoors. Here's everything I'm doing in February!
A lot of us are seeing increased prices at the grocery store right now, and this is about the time of year I start craving fresh greens.
Though I can't quite grow anything outdoors as it's still snowing here in the Pacific Northwest, I can get some greens started inside so I can transplant them out into the high tunnel about three months earlier than I could if I waited to direct sow them outside.
In This Episode:
- Watch as I start greens indoors using seed starting trays, a heat mat and some grow lights, including the varieties I'm starting. Read this post to learn more about starting seeds indoors.
