I’ve started up my seedlings again — can’t wait to get this year going!
So far, it’s just been a few vegetables: onions, leeks, broccoli & kale. For flowers, I’ve started coleus and pansies and they both seem to be doing well in my cold attic.
Since I’ve been stuck inside of an igloo, I just rented Backyard Harvest: A year-round guide to growing fruit and vegetables again from the library. Last year, I kept it for a super long time and didn’t want to give it back. I eventually ran out of renewals and had to send it home. I love this book so much — it’s great for beginners and the pictures are awesome.

Everything has been taking off!
I’ve been using this organic fertilizer to keep everything going. Just a tiny bit added to the water every two weeks has been working out pretty well so far. I mean, how could it not work when the guy on the front looks like “The Dude” from The Big Lebowski?
I started running out of room in the attic under the lights, so I had to start moving plants to the windows. They seem to like it pretty well, no complaints so far. 🙂

The seeds & starters have been growing nicely and look good so far!
I also have a set of pepper plants growing that will hopefully be big enough for a full size container in a few weeks.
Starting some Broccoli and some herbs seemed like a good idea to put away the winter blues. It’s early, but I’m only going to keep them in containers indoors, so they should be ok as long as I keep them away from the crazy cold drafts coming from outside.
Getting ready to start Broccoli and some herbs to keep indoors until I can really get going next month.
