Before Winter is over, I need to retry this Winter-sow thing.
Cut open a flap on one side of the jug and make sure you leave it attached to the jug. This opening will allow you to put the soil or seed starting media of your choice into the jug –about 3 inches of it or so.
- I don’t have to take room inside the house for seedlings.
- I don’t have to bother with heating mats or grow lights.
- I don’t have to babysit the seedlings.
- I don’t have to worry about hardening the seedlings.
Our last frost date is still over a month away so this test is still valid. I will post weekly progress reports. I have seen pictures of plastic jugs and bottles covered in snow and reportedly, the seeds germinated just fine when the time came.
