Happy Winter Solstice everyone!

December 22, 2015

What with holiday preparations and temps forecast in the 60's, I haven't started winter sowing yet. Everything is ready, though, and I'll be going strong in a couple weeks. May all have a serene holiday season and a productive New Year.

    Glad to be on the lengthening days side of solstice. For the first time in many years I did not ws on solstice. Since I am only sowing annuals this winter I will wait unti February/March to start. It appears the warm fall is over as temps drop into the 20sF this next week and snow is expected the next few days.

    It's supposed to reach a high of 60 today here. I usually don't WS anything until mid-February and again, in April - my annuals. I wonder what effect this warm weather will have on my plants.

    It's raining, chilly here....decent weather for winter sowing. I'm awfully busy these last weeks and this week especially but I sowed one pot. Seeds from a fir in our yard, fir that looks like a noble but is pencil slim, very tall. I don't know if some kind of 'blend' (hybrid), or just an oddball shape ;)

    I'm making myself a note to order some seeds Sunday, there have been some things I've wanted to try...

    Love that our days should begin to get just a bit longer again now.

    I don't usually sow anything on the solstice, but I certainly do look forward to it and celebrate it! I love the fact that the daylight is lengthening now, and I don't care how many people chuckle at me, I will take my extra two minutes of daylight and be very happy about it! :)

    A little solstice humor!

    Funny, Heidi!

    Hello all! I have not done any winter sowing for the past couple of years but hope to get something in this year, maybe tomatoes and some annual flowers. My garden is a complete bust after two years of total neglect.

    Hey Digger! Absolutely with you on the extra minutes of daylight. I have myself convinced that I can actually "see" the difference from day to day. Yeah, sure.

    A little late for the solstice, but Happy Holidays to everyone!
