Winter Sowing Container Count aka "Zone Wars" 2012-2013 - #3

This is the third 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!!

Good morning, winter sowers. Welcome to the count Dremyr and Boysnoise210! Luckynes, 80 containers in a day is quite impressive! I had your previous total at 59, add 80 and you get 139. Please confirm your total and LMK.

another 30 milk jugs for zone 5.


 o
RE: Winter Sowing Container Count aka "Zone Wars" 2012-2013 - #3

another 5 trays today - making a total of 104 - zone 8( counted some of the trays as 2 or 3 since they are full size and have several varieties of seeds in them. This was the best total I could come up with since there are many modules and everything is a vastly different size and shape. Haven't started on veggies yet (mostly direct sown but leeks, tomatoes, curcubits and peppers will be in pots, at least till May.
Wondering why zone 8 is lagging?

Good morning, winter sowers. Welcome to the count Manana20, Proudgm, and JenH20! Campanula, zone 8 never has astounding numbers in the count, this zone doesn't generally get much of winter. The count usually comes down to a race between 5 and 6, which covers a large part of the wintry US.

Sure is wintry here still, we have about a foot of snow on the ground with another storm coming in today, although they've downgraded it to 2-4 inches.

Happy Saturday, winter sowing peeps! Welcome to the count Sandysoil and Carrotstix! It's certainly not too late. Zones 5 and 6 are still pretty wintry. We just had another winter storm which dumped over a foot of snow, and my containers are buried again. But it's supposed to be in the 50s this weekend so it probably won't last long.

I've still not found my cache of perennial seeds that I'd set aside specially to sow this year. Oh, we'll. I guess I'll focus on annuals and hope they show up for next year. Of course I still have far more seeds and containers than I have time to sow and plant out, but the garden will be beautiful and fun.

Good afternoon, winter sowers. Ever so steadily, zone 6 is creeping up on zone 5!! Welcome new counters Bebe_ct, Jmhill926_organic, and Jbowhay!

Jmhill, it is very exciting to see how many seeds sprout. Not 100%, but I usually get between 80-90% of containers sprouting. Some seeds are nearly foolproof to sow, others are fussy and perplexing. Either way, the fate of a winter-sower often becomes too many seedlings and having to "plunk n run", "hunk o seedlings" and - perish the thought - cull extra seedlings!

I have been sowing since February so I got many...

Today I sowed container number 91 and some of the jugs have 1, 2 or 4 different seeds in it. So the total is actually 117 different seeds. :-)

Sowed 7 more yesterday for zone 7 for a total of 76. Just a few more to go for me. I'm still on the fence about a couple of plants but will probably go for it just so I don't get to May and wish I'd sown some.

Hi, I don't see my total updated since my last post which was on Sun, Mar 3, 13 at 21:01- "Planted 12 more containers for a total of 100 for zone 7."
I just added 10 more so my total will be 110 for zone 7.

RE: Winter Sowing Container Count aka "Zone Wars" 2012-2013 - #3

Sowed 20 yesterday and 24 new ones today for a total of 161. Still keeping my tomatoes and peppers indoors though. I think I'll bring the tomatoes out this weekend but will keep the peppers indoors for a couple of weeks. Both are in milk jugs too.

Good morning, winter sowers. Well the gap between zones 5 and 6 is even closer. This contest could go either way, which is the usual course of events for the container count, lol!

Welcome to the count SassySoil - we have a Sandysoil and Sassysoil. What is "sassy" soil anyway? Jensyen, sorry to have missed your containers, and I also missed Thenightengale's first post, so a belated welcome to the count to Thenightengale!

RE: Winter Sowing Container Count aka "Zone Wars" 2012-2013 - #3

Please add 6 more for zone 5. Total is now 41. I'm adding many more containers of various milkweed types because of the news of dramatic declines in the Monarch populations. If anyone has milkweed seeds sitting around, please sow them or just toss them on some open dirt and let them do their thing. The Monarchs will thank you, as I do.

Greetings, winter sowers. Welcome to this year's count, Diggerdee!

Docmom, although I've sown 1 container of milkweed (swamp) so far, you've got me inspired to sow a few more. This is one species that the slugs tend to demolish in my gardens! Must remember to spread sluggo this year.

RE: Winter Sowing Container Count aka "Zone Wars" 2012-2013 - #3

I guess I'll join in with the count, though I can't help out my former zone 6ers now that I am back in zone 5 again. So...

Add 5 to zone 5.

Yeah, I have a whopping total of 5. lol! I got a late start but I'll be slowly adding to this total. But not too many. I have enough mature plants to worry about transplanting from one state to another to have to add caring for too many babies on top of them. We'll see what happens next year. This year will be mostly plants for the butterflies and their cats.

"There are many tired gardeners but I've seldom met old gardeners. I know many elderly gardeners but the majority are young at heart. Gardening simply does not allow one to be mentally old, because too many hopes and dreams are yet to be realized. The one absolute of gardeners is faith. Regardless of how bad past gardens have been, every gardener believes that next year's will be better. It is easy to age when there is nothing to believe in, nothing to hope for; gardeners, however, simply refuse to grow up. Thomas Jefferson once said 'Though an old man, I am but a young gardener'."...Allan Armitage

Good morning, winter sowers - at least it's morning here in the US, although in the EU it is already afternoon, so Good afternoon to European winter sowers. Welcome to the 2012-13 count, SandyTowes, Marshallkey, Harborrose, and Silverkelt! SandyTowes, sorry to hear you still have lots of snow. Zone 4'ers are hardy! Harborrose, there are no measly containers in winter-sowing - "every container is important" - haha.

I was away visiting elderly parents this past week, came back to almost all the snow melted. It's finally feeling a little Springy outside. If I don't post tomorrow, Happy Easter everybody!

"Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers to-day;
And give us not to think so far away
As the uncertain harvest; keep us here
All simply in the springing of the year.

Oh, give us pleasure in the orchard white,
Like nothing else by day, like ghosts by night;
And make us happy in the happy bees,
The swarm dilating round the perfect trees.

And make us happy in the darting bird
That suddenly above the bees is heard,
The meteor that thrusts in with needle bill,
And off a blossom in mid air stands still.

For this is love and nothing else is love,
The which it is reserved for God above
To sanctify to what far ends He will,
But which it only needs that we fulfil."
