Main Event: Wintersowing vs. Indoor Sowing

Went with the urge to get green things growing, the fullness of the moon and my intuition that spring will come early this year, and started some seeds indoors yesterday.  If I waited for the full moon in March, I feared there would be a bit of a late start so I jumped in.  I sowed some of the same varieties indoors as I have outdoors, as this is my first try at this wintersowing technique and I’m still a bit fearful they will not sprout.  If they do, I’m gonna be planting out seedlings like a garden ninja!

So here it is, the master list.  Wintersowing vs. indoor sowing.  I’m kind of excited to see the results.  I’m secretly pulling for wintersowing, I just want it to work so badly!
