Time to Start Seeds!

February 6, 2010

I’ve been reading the Farmer’s Almanac, especially the bit about planting by the phases of the moon. With the twelve week lead time to the last freeze, yesterday and today are the best planting days for onion seeds. My next installment of the Garden Planning and Review, which will be about alliums, will have to wait. I have a busy day ahead… trips to the nursery and hardware stores, organizing the seed shelf, getting my hands in the dirt, harvesting vermicompost, fondling the seeds… Did I mention my seed order arrived this week? Woohoo! Time to play! Okay, so it’ only onions, but it’s a start. 🙂
