Well, the experiment with starting plants in bottles in the winter is finally over. There were ups and downs, and pros and cons. It was a fun thing to try though.

  12. man that snow makes me shudder, all this snow popping up everywhere has me backing off my transplanting some stuff outside

  13. awesome thank you for sharing have a blessed day

  14. Thanks for the update on the "Winter Sowings" I agree with you, I think that most of what survived were "Cold Weather Crops" and some flowers. I did not have a great success with mine to be honest, so wont be doing it again. It was kind of convenient though, with giving me more space in the spring. I think it would depend largely, on your temperature zone though to get a better success rate. "Nothing ventured, nothing gained". Take care, Jim.
