2014 garden // starting seeds

Despite the bitter cold, and the never ending snow (we got another 7 inches dropped on us this past week!), we have already begun to start our 2014 garden.

Over the past few years we've tried a variety of seed starting processes, most of which have failed miserably, as you can see here, here, here, and here.

This year we're using soil blocks again. We tried soil blocks for the first time last year using one of these which allows us to make our own soil mixture.  Hopefully this year, we'll have more success as we're using heat mats and a fan to help with moisture.

So far we've started a few kinds of peppers, onions, and cabbage along with some lavender and parsley.  Over the next few weeks and months we'll continue to add to this list and hopefully by our frost-free date we'll be ready to plant lovely seedlings straight into our garden!

We're really looking forward to getting back outside and growing more in our garden this year!
