Winter Sowing Container Count aka "Zone Wars" 2012-2013 - #2

This is the second thread in the official Winter Sowing Container Count (affectionately known as Zone Wars).

The count runs from December 21, 2012 - May 1, 2013.

Everyone is welcome to participate! To participate you simply post on this thread the number of containers you have wintersown. You can post daily, weekly, etc. Each time you post, please include your total count so far. For example:

'I sowed 5 more today for a total of 25 containers'.

How To Count Containers:
Each container, no matter the size, counts as one. However, if you feel your container is worth more than one, just use your judgment. Say, for example, you have one flat bin full of twenty cups with four different seeds. You can count it as 1, 4, or 20. The same for a lasagna pan you may plant several different types of seed in. Whatever you feel is right. We wont be peeking over your garden gate to count your containers.

How to List your Zone:
Make sure your zone is listed correctly on your member page so we can place you on the correct 'team'. You can edit your zone by clicking on Member Pages and then click Edit Your Membership Details. You are welcome to use any guide you wish to determine your zone, as well as your own experience. If you are unsure of your zone, this Gardenweb page may help: Finding Your Zone.

If your member page does not list a zone, you must include the zone in your post. For example:

'I sowed 5 more today for Zone 7 for a total of 25 containers'.

If your member pages lists you on the border of 2 zones (such as 7b/8a) you need to decide which team to join for Zone Wars, and include it in your post. Or you can revise your member page and put 7b from now until May 1. Then after May 1 change it back to 7b/8a.

To see the latest count, click on the Container Count / Zone Wars Spreadsheet.

Everyone who is winter sowing is encouraged to participate.

Chatting, support, suggestions, and friendly rivalry are encouraged.

Every container counts so join the fun!!

Did 18 more containers on Thursday and 17 more today (Thursday's lost at the end of the previous thread) to make 168 total for zone 5....I think that's all of my early winter seeds. I'll take a short break for a couple of weeks before I start sowing the late winter/early spring seeds, think I'm about half done!

A Week in the life of a Gardener's Spouse

She dug the plot on Monday-
The soil was rich and fine,
She forgot to thaw out dinner-
So we went out to dine...
She planted roses Tuesday-
She says they are a must,
They really are quite lovely,
But she forgot to dust...
On Wednesday it was daisies-
They opened up with the sun,
All whites and pinks and yellows-
But the laundry wasn't done...
The poppies came on Thursday-
A bright and cheery red,
I guess she really was engrossed-
She never made the bed...
It was violets on Friday-
In colors she adores,
It never bothered her at all-
All the crumbs upon the floors...
I hired a maid on Saturday-
My week is now complete,
My wife can garden all she wants-
The house will still be neat!
It's nearly lunchtime Sunday-
And I cannot find the maid,
Oh no! I don't believe it!
She's out there WITH THE SPADE!!!

I'm on my Macbook right now, and just noticed that I can't display the WS spreadsheet from this computer because I'm not logged into Google docs. Not supposed to work that way! I think people are supposed to be able to display the spreadsheet without having to be logged into google.

Terrene, your poem is cute! May I share it with some friends? (If it is an original, I will give you credit!)

BTW, I am just now joining in here - not as much time as in years past to browse the forums - but I am still wintersowing, and have 218 containers so far, for zone 7.

The climate difference is still challenging me. Cool season vegetables, and seed packets saying "germinates in soil temp 55-60 degrees" will not germinate if I don't get them done soon. It's still winter here in northern Alabama. No snow to speak of, but definitely intermittent periods of very cold days and freezing nights. But by about mid-February, it will start warming up here and then get hot FAST. So I guess I better go sow my cilantro!

daisydawnny,

I hope so to. I don't see them much in my area, but there is a house down the road from me that has some. I have admired them for years, but never knew what they were. I got the seeds in the winter swap and was excited to see what they were when I looked them up online! I might see if I can grow one as a Bonsai.

I have noticed a real trend in this count so far. If it wasn't for kiskin in zone 5 and me in zone 6, this whole count competition would really look different. You can thank us later.

Dirtguy50,
We all know that you're planning on mostly annuals this year, so you'll be bumping up our numbers once spring is closer. We have faith in you.

Good morning, winter sowers. Wow lots of activity, sorry I missed yesterday, was doing some storm "Nemo" preparations (plan to do a few WS containers this morning before they get covered by 2 feet of snow!).

Zone 7 is cooking and trouncing zone 6 (still early in the season though). Dirtguy, yes thank you for your significant contribution to the count, LOL! (Hey, EVERYBODY is welcome no matter how big or small.) Welcome new counters - Kellyisgreen, VV79, Ruthz, Ktrout, and Carolinaflowerlover!

No real snow here yet....I planted 14 more milk jugs today in Zone 5.
I am up to 192 and have many more jugs to plant in the wings for my tender stuff !! I can still see my jugs but I expect by tomorrow morning they'll be BURIED in the white stuff.

6 more for zone 5. Total now 17. I'm realizing that I'm missing a whole bunch of seeds. I think I must have packed them away somewhere "safe" and now don't know where they are. I have a list of what I was planning to plant, but I don't have any of those seeds in my box. Time to tear the house apart. Happy sowing.

7 more for zone 6. That makes an even 50 for me.

I ran out of milk jugs. Now I'll be waiting on sowing pepper seed in Bus boy containers. How many WS containers does a bus boy container count for?

I'm sure we'll drink a little more milk and I can get a few more outside.

Hi Terrene,

Did you get the 40 inches of snow that I have been reading about? So glad to see your post above that you were apparently home safe and sound on Friday night, not stuck in a snow drift on a freeway. If you don't post for several days we will all know that you have lost power!

Lilykit, so glad your power stayed on, you sure got lots of snow. Besides Lilykit and Midmented, I don't see any East Coasters posting after Friday night. Hope everyone is ok and able to keep warm. Sending positive thoughts.

Heavy rain and a tornado watch in my town on Sunday 2/10/13. Tornado damage reported 250 miles east of me near Hattiesburg, MS, 5 injuries. What weather!


 o
RE: Winter Sowing Container Count aka "Zone Wars" 2012-2013 - #2

Good morning, winter sowers! Hope everybody had a good weekend. Hi River, we got about 24 inches of snow here in metro-west Boston. Some parts of Southern New England got close to 3 feet! I didn't lose power, everything's okay, except there is snow everywhere. We went from nothing to 2 feet and higher drifts and piles. Not sure when I'll see the WS containers again!

Well I'm not sure what I think about this new GW interface. The Titles and clouds at the top of each page look nice - but the Container Count posts, which I spent a lot of time formatting, don't look so nice. A lot of white space and the larger fonts are huge. Also my totals do not line up any more.

What do you guys think? How does this thread look? It seems many websites have been reformatting to enhance their interface on mobile devices. How does this look on a smart phone or tablet?

OK, we just call it sowing here in the UK but, not wanting to be left out, even though mine are in trays and pots rather than jugs, I have 18 types of sweet peas, 6 lots of delphinium, 4 lots of various digitalis (including Pippa and Polly, lutea, dalmatian white, snowthimbles and purpurea alba), achillea, phlox, dianthus barbatus, 5 types of hardy geranium, aconitum 'Ivorine', a NOID thalictrum (saved from a garden visit) another NOID monocot -I liked the look of the seed heads, Pimpinella, chaerophylum, various roses, browallia, knapweed, scabious, echinacea Bravado, aquilegias (5 types).....around 70 trays and pots and many single modules (180 or so)from an early autumn sowing, so far. I guess you could call it around 100. Zone 8

Good morning, winter sowing guys! Welcome to this year's count, Bookjunky, Lissatink, and Smarmyclothes! Lissatink, yes Nemo was a doozy, but about half of our 24" has melted already, although my containers are still buried. Barbe, sorry I missed a few containers, but yes once you sow over a hundred you are a member of the winter-sowing "Mile High Club" (haha). Congrats!
