How Many Have You Wintersown?
I cataloged my seeds this weekend and discovered I have well over 200 different varieties of perennials and annuals that I'd like to wintersow this season! I've been saving milk jugs all year after my first wintersowing try last winter (33 jugs). I think I have around 60 jugs now, I'll be hitting up friends and co-workers for theirs to get anywhere near the number I'd like to have to start. I think if I start sowing right after Christmas vacation and keep up with it through March I might sow at least 1 jug of everything I'd like to try!
I was adopted by a generous wintersower/seed collector from this forum last year and still have a lot of seeds from her that I didn't plant last year that I refuse to let go to waste, those will for sure be planted this wintersowing season. Some of the other seeds are pretty old, left-overs from when I tried grow lights inside so not so hopeful that they will produce but won't throw them away until they're proven bad. And I went crazy at the sites mentioned in girlgroupgirl's post, ordered 60 or so varieties in the last week....
So has anyone else out there let themselves get completely carried away with the seed collecting/wintersowing frenzy, either this year or in the past? If so, what's the largest number of containers you've started in a winter season? I'm looking to you all for inspiration, I know from some of the pictures I've seen on this forum several of you have done more that 200 containers in a year. I'm trying to convince myself I'm not insane to think of sowing so many. And I'll have plenty of help planting in the spring....yeah, right!
