    All 28 garlic cloves have sprouted. I removed a bunch of leaves acting like mulch and found new strawberry leaves. I covered them back up for now. Spring is coming! The brown stuff is coffee grounds.

    Next weekend I will spray dormant spray on the fruit trees and the first weekend in April I will plant seedlings - I still have lots of heirloom seeds from last year.

    We have tulip leaves rapidly growing on the South side of our house, their flowers will be red. My largest raised vegetable garden patch has no snow left, so I can see where my green onions will soon be growing. Most of our lawn still has a considerable amount of snow.

    It's neat to see your Spring pictures and updates! We are still under snow, though I have started a number of seeds indoors (tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, parsley, rosemary, marigolds). We typically can't put things outside until the end of May/early June (mid-May if we are having an exceptionally warm Spring). It's hard not to be impatient!

    My seed packets say 7-8 weeks before last frost for tomatoes and 6-7 weeks for peppers, etc. I was planning to plant next weekend but am getting anxious to start now. Lol.

    I would consider myself a gardener of sorts, but I can never get anything to start from seeds! I don't know what I am doing wrong.

    A couple of weeks ago I started some banana, catnip, dahlia, poppy, and mystery seed I picked up last fall while walking my dog (plant looked like some kind of iris as far as leaves go). So far only one dahlia seedling. I read that banana takes forever to germinate, but the rest of them it is so discouraging to see nothing.

    Maybe successful seed starters can share their process?

    Also, the OPs garden and yard is so inspiring and beautiful. You can see a labour of love shaping up each season.

    If your planting them indoors it ok but don't plant them outside .. make sure frost is out ground before planting..

    Dont over water your seeds and give them lots of sun light and feed them some plant food .. be patient it takes while for seeds germinate .. some longer then others

    @tobiwobi: Some seeds you have to scarify, others you have to soak overnight, and still others needs stratification, otherwise they won't germinate. It will tell you on the seed packet what you have to do, if anything. As for your mystery seed, If it's indeed from an iris then it needs stratification before they will germinate.

    Seedlings done. Actually I have a clear plastic dome so those neat tongue depressed labels were removed for now
    I did 144 seedlings (2 trays) with 13 different heirloom tomato varieties and 5 different type of heirloom peppers.
