Winter Sowing

I've been gathering up my plastic milk jugs and have started winter sowing a little.  I do this as the boy is working on his school work and doesn't need any encouragement (this is usually during tech ex).  He is a computer genius, at least in my eyes (ha ha).

So far, I have sown 6 quart milk jugs full of spinach.  It's a slow start but I have the rest of the winter so I'll get enough out there.  I hope to sew some leaf lettuce today.  

Have you started winter sowing yet?   If you would like to know more about it there is a website and a Facebook page devoted to it here.

Thanks for the link for winter sowing. I have never tried that before. Might be a good way to jumpstart my garden.

Kathy That's how my lettuce got so big last year. Usually i plant it in the garden then the heat comes on and we don't get to harvest a lot. So it does work great on that. I didn't have much success though on tomatoes but I can't help trying again!

I'm thinking about sowing some spinach & trying to grow it in our wellhouse...if they ever get it finished! Because the above-ground hardware is all in that building we have to keep the indoor temp warm. The new building will be very well insulated so I'm hoping spinach will do well without added heat. Light will be the issue. I have one west facing window that I plan to set my seedlings in front of. I'll rotate it to keep them growing evenly. I buy a shell of spinach every other week so I really should grow my own.

Vickie, it is just to get an early start on transplants or could you just eat it as you go for the greens? You'd think it would sprout up fast then die off like tray starts so often do.

I have not started my winter sowing yet. Wonder if it is time yet. They say I am in zone 5B Northwest Indiana. What zone are you in. I sowed some last year but thanks for the links to review. Nancy

I like to use spinach for a wrap. Sounds like you have a greenhouse! That's great Jenny!

Vickie @Vickie's Kitchen and Garden said...

It's just an early start. You need to wait for cold weather to really get going and then as it warms up they start to srout. I was really a little worried about putting these out because of the warmth but I'm sure they didn't sprout. The temperature they say is going down again.
We can't get in our garden too early because it gets too wet to grow from seed. By the time it dries out it's almost too hot for spinach or lettuce so this is a great early start for us.

We are in Michigan 6b..hope I didn't jump too soon but I think I'll be fine. I hope we both have success.

Does one little window count as a greenhouse? I hope so!
