    Canadian Gardening's e-newsletter has lots of tips on growing from seeds. But this article on what can be planted first for spring will help the SCers keen to get started on their gardens by preparing the planting area before sowing.

    Leek, Onion and Kale were started indoors from seed and have been planted out in the garden - doing very well. Also planted spinach directly in garden a few days ago. Fingers crossed that the wire worms are not a problem this year. I have parsley and lettuce started from seed indoors at the moment. As soon as they are up, they will be put outside on the deck but I'll keep them in pots for the time being.

    Lettuce coming up...I put the large container outside on the deck. I'll leave the lettuce in this container and use as needed when ready to eat. It's supposed to be sunny tomorrow so that should give my plants a bit of joy tomorrow

    This year, I've planted the usual things - peas, potatos, cabbage, dry beans, string beans, onions, leeks, garlic, tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, beets, kale, carrots, zucchini, basil, and flowers around the garden (sunflowers, zinnias, pansies, marigolds). I wanted to see if I could grow rosemary, epazote, and stevia from seed. I managed to grow enough of all three to transplant into containers outside this coming week. My other experiment - so happy I tried it! - was to use milk jugs as mini greenhouses to start cool weather vegetables and herbs outside in March/April. The house ended up being far less cluttered with transplants and the ones started outside didn't have to be hardened off - I just put them right in the garden when the time was right.

    Can't wait to see people's pictures of the things they're growing this summer!
