Winter Sowing Vegetables Outdoors

What the heck is WINTER SOWING?

Winter Sowing is an awesome technique to germinate and grow your vegetable seeds into strong, healthy seedling inside little mini-greenhouse containers out in the SNOW or cold weather if you aren’t in snow country!

There are so many benefits to using this method…

~ No more using grow lights over seeds in your home

~ Big savings on electricity from not having to leave grow lights on 16 hours a day

~ Not having your house taken over by seedlings for several months a year

~ Not having to ‘harden’ your seedlings (ie taking them indoors, outdoors, indoors, outdoors… for several weeks before leaving them outdoors for good.)This is a HUGE time saver!

~ They are actually stronger and healthier when the seeds germinate outdoors in the elements

~ It’s super fun to to out in the snow and peak inside to see if they are growing yet _____________________________________________________________________________________________

      HI Jim

      Re the number of spinach seeds in a one gallon container? I would probably make about 8 -10 holes in the soil with 2-3 seeds in each.

      Let me know how your Winter Sowing goes!
