Following on the heels of a freakishly warm fall has been the weird winter. No prolonged periods of low temperatures. Little precipitation. No snow to speak of. So the usual prompt to get started on growing seedlings– lots of gray days– hasn’t happened.
But the seeds are organized and the growing has begun. So far, there are 288 tiny cabbage seedlings poking their green heads out of the soil. Next will be celeriac, cauliflower and broccoli.
And if the weird winter turns into a strange spring, we’ll be ready.
