Anyone else planting inside right now?

Is anyone sowing seeds yet? It seems to me I started some cool crops in February and to tell the truth, I'm missing those starting beds.

Not me.  I am waiting on Skippy’s garden app.  It is the best so far judging my start dates.  some things can be started, but nothing I grow!

Some of you coastal folks have milder temps...

Nope, no seed starting yet. It's on my to-do list, and I've seen that I've done it at this time in years past, but not feeling moved to yet. Rolling Eyes
