Winter Sowing [win-ter soh-ing]–
sewing(oops – it was late) sowing seeds in the middle of the winter and allowing them to come up when it’s the right time
I don’t technically follow the rules of winter sowing. I simply plant things late in the fall in my cold frame, usually spinach and lettuce. When the cold frame first starts to warm in the spring, the seeds germinate – it’s very simple and easy. This is really nice because I don’t have to worry about sowing flats of seeds top outside or in my basement seed starting area. I usually have great germination and the spinach and lettuce usually thrives. I noticed these spinach seedlings last week when the weather warmed up.
