N&C Midwest January 2015

Post  Goosegirl on 1/3/2015, 7:22 am

So, fellow lots o 's, have you ordered your seeds yet? If you are new to the region, remember that you need to order seeds and plants well ahead of planting season, otherwise our temperate and tropical gardener friends may have already cleaned out the supply of that one special variety that you absolutely MUST have in your garden!

Thank you, that was just the little kick I needed to hear.  Shocked
I received all the catalogs and didn't give a thought to gardeners in warmer places probably ordering like mad already.

Currently -30 windchill, with snow coming tomorrow. So you can see why we Arcticans could temporarily forget about the race to order seeds before they are all sold out for the season! Very Happy

After this week's weather, sowing onion and leek seeds inside will be extra enjoyable today.   Hot pepper seeds will follow in a week or so.

Im behind and need to order!  I am seed swapping with a couple people on FB.  Oh and started my onions.  I may have started some pepper seeds a bit early to get a head start...

I saw a sign of spring today!  Definitely reddish buds on our red maple tree!  And if Mother Nature is incredibly kind to me i can plant the first planting of lettuce in just over a month!

Herblover after I saw your post I had to get my binoculars to see what my autumn blaze maples are doing.  There are red buds on mine too  : )
