January Organic Seed Starting

January Organic Seed Starting

We are teaching ourselves how to garden organically.  This is our 2nd year gardening in Zone 7B using open-pollinated, heirloom seeds.  Our first year, we just threw some seeds in the garden to see if anything would grow. This year we are a bit more organized (just a bit).  We are still experimenting with different techniques and seeds to see what works for us.  Today we are starting onions, cabbage, peas, broccoli, artichokes, and celery.
