Winter Solstice Celebration and winter sowing
Every year I join other winter sowers as part of the winter sowing winter solstice celebration as shown on wintersown.org. We sow four sets of seeds to honor Remembrance, Life, Mother Nature and Faith.
I like the celebration as it marks the beginning of winter and the winter sowing season. I like being part of a group throughout the world which celebrates these beginnings. I like picking out special seeds for each; remembrance, life, mother nature, and faith. It adds an extra thoughtfulness to the act of sowing.
Sometimes I winter sow more than 4 containers but usually I only do those containers and wait until later to sow other seeds. The first few years I needed to start in January as I was winter sowing hundreds of containers. Now with fewer containers to winter sow I wait until February.
