It’s dark and dreary outside

potmakerBut it’s green inside! Going down to the basement and seeing signs of new green life gives you a beacon of hope of things to come during the dead of winter. And it’s been a hard one. In anticipation of selling an early crop of veggies and produce I thought I should probably get some things started indoors. The weather has been horribly cold for weeks now. I planted 36 potmaker cups on Saturday and here it is-3 days later-about 25% of my cups have sprouted. That’s pretty quick. I had a heat mat underneath the tray and made sure to keep the soil damp. It looks like we’ll have nasty weather through the weekend and then it starts warming up to normal temperatures. If that’s the case I should be ready to plant for my mini-CSA that I provide for 5 families.
