I’ve officially started the 2011 gardening season. I started 1 flat of onion seeds so far and some celery seeds. Most seed starting guides will tell you to start your onions and celery a month later than this, usually mid-late February. I find that these do much better if started earlier. Onions can be planted outside early as they can take some cold weather. I have found that my celery does much better if I plant it earlier rather than later.
I’ll be starting a few more flats of onions this week when I have some time, and I’ll probably start a few little containers of herbs that I want to be of decent size when when spring comes. This year I’m experimenting with soil blocks. I think I’m going to be doing some experiments to see how they compare to cell flats, they’re certainly cheaper.
