Here it is â€“ a countdown til spring. From now until the first day of spring, I will post ways to make the dreary days of midwinter a little more merry.
Day 15: Start seeds indoors.
Nothing is as satisfying as getting your hands dirty in February as you sow seeds indoors that will be transplanted outdoors in late spring. Visions of tomatoes dance in my head and watching for sprouting seeds like a kid with her nose pressed up against a window is delightful! Let it grow, let it grow, let it grow!
Still not sure what to grow when in the Pacific NW? The Maritime Northwest Gardening Guide is my go-to resources and it will show you the way!
