Most of my seed starting happens in late March because it stays cold here for so long. Our last frost date is at the end of May so we have a very short growing season. Onions (what I am starting in photo) I can plant in the garden sometime in April & a frost won’t bother them. I can also cover them really easily if need be. I started luffa gourd plants at the end of February because they have a very long growing season. Once the luffa gourd plants get a certain size I will transplant them into a big pot and keep them in the house till July then put the pots outside in the garden. If I have a greenhouse by fall, I’ll put the pots in there.
I start pumpkins, celery, some flowers, tomatoes, peppers, & corn inside as well. My living room becomes my greenhouse, we have huge windows that let in tons of light. The rest I will sow outside directly in my garden. This year it will be carrots, green beans, pinto beans, red beans, spinach, kale, lettuce, and flowers. I want to put in a couple new beds, one for a strawberry patch and one to grow popcorn.
I am so excited to get back in my garden! I love to grow all the things!! The snow needs to do some serious melting first though. I don’t even think I could open my garden gate at the moment there is so much snow!!
