Winter Sowing 2017

Well, it's that time of year again when I start my winter sowing project, although you wouldn't think it's winter because the temps this week are almost in the 60's...

But I'm no dummy and I know that we will be under a blanket of snow by this time next month. Anyway, I started my most hearty, stratification-required seeds this past Monday, which included:
  • Hollyhocks
  • Borage
  • Giant from Italy Parsley

I went back to the styrofoam cups after last year's peat-pot disaster, using a soil-less starter mix from Johnny's Seeds, and brand new seeds I ordered for this season.

Speaking of seed orders, I had a HILARIOUS surprise when I received my order from Southern Exposure Seed Exchange this year. I was feeling mischievous when I placed my order, so in the section labeled "Special Requests:" I wrote them this:

Annnnd then I forgot about it. So, when my seeds arrived with this picture wrapped around the outside of my seed package, I was like, "WTH?" Then it clicked and I BURST OUT LAUGHING!

It says, "Hey girl, I grew this kale for you in my organic garden."

OMG, that was the funniest thing and it totally made my day. I am doing this from now on for ANY situation that asks for "Special Requests".

Thanks SESE!
