More snow? It must be time to start seeds

By Penny Stine

I might be jumping the gun a little bit, but I just can't help myself. Besides, peppers and herbs take forever to grow in my house because we keep the thermostat down so low.
So, yes, I succumbed to temptation and started seeds indoors. They may get too leggy, but I don't care. It was a wonderful thing to do last weekend, when it was too cold to do much else.

 

 

I meant to only start peppers, herbs, leeks, celery root and petunias, but I soaked all the plugs that came with my nifty bio-dome from Park Seed and wasn't sure if I could re-soak them again in two weeks when I wanted to plant tomatoes. So I planted tomatoes, too.

 

 

 

In addition to the seedlings in the bio-domes, I have some in a spare room under grow-lights. I'm starting seedlings for a couple friends who don't have southern-facing windows in spare rooms, which is why it looks like I'm entertaining thoughts of starting a greenhouse rather than simply growing a garden.
I'll probably start a few more tomato plants and put them under the grow lights, but I'm going to wait a week or two.
Nothing like the recent snowstorm to make you want to plant something!
