sowing vegetables before freeze?
I have done a little winter sowing but I am an experienced and professional gardener otherwise. Would these ideas work?
I am planting garlic next week and I would like to seed some Walla Walla onions nearby. I was hoping it would start up quickly in spring. Does that work and what about straw mulch that would be on the garlic? Should I mulch and then remove the straw in very early spring from the onions?
Also plan on throwing down some spinach and lettuce seeds and making a straw bale and old window coldframe. I was hoping it would also get the seed off to a really early start. Would this work? I was thinking of leaving the window tilted off to let the snow cover the area and then putting the window on in late winter to heat it up.
