Hello fellow winter sowers!
I have been out of town for the past two weeks so I am feeling very far behind here! I've been busy this weekend trying to make up for it too. We had a warm spell and I checked my containers for sprouts, but nothing yet. Now they are covered by fresh snow again. Is it spring yet?? :-)

I sowed 22 more containers this weekend, bringing my total up to 71. Now I have to go buy more dirt!

I haven't had a chance to catch up on everybody, been busy with spring arriving. I have to mention, it's kinda funny now to sow a box of seeds, or milk jug - check on it in 2/3 days, and see sprouts!! I knew it wasn't hard to start plants from seed - but OMG, IT IS SO EASY WINTERSOWN!!

Once again a big thank you to Trudi/Queen Wintersowiem river and hostarookie for your commitment and dedication to the forum notes, and all my new garden friends (gardenusual, ladyrose, countrycarolyn....the first few, growing every day...looking forward to the next one.... )across the soils, this really has changed my life, my way of living, and my family's future!!!!!! Thank you!

 o
Zone Wars!! Official closing date for winter sowing??

Oh. Is it still considered winter sowing if your doing it in April? I've planted a lot of seeds in the last week, but none of them have covers on them, so to me, because of the date and the lack of covers, this is just spring planting, not winter sowing. My 54 have covers; the rest do not.

What is the cutoff date for true winter sowing?


 o
RE: Official closing date for winter sowing??

OK-I'm looking through the FAQs again. Sorry for the last question. I'm planting with fuzzy sweaters on, but not putting covers on. The date (cold enough) is within range, but the method is off a bit. Does THAT still count as WS?

Nice going Brad. Great start too. Looks like us "oldies" got you hooked. (I'm one of those oldies, year 8 for me this year, and my numbers are now way, way down from what they used to be. Early years where over 1.000 containers. Now the beds are getting full, so numbers go way, way down).

Yup, got us another one, and looks like from this thread, lots and lots of Newbies this year.

Congrats to all of the Newbies.

2 more for me, total 8 for zone 8

Thanks again to paulan, who sent me seeds of Adenium obesum pink (Desert Rose). It's new to me, a hot weather plant native to arid regions of Africa & Madagascar, popular in Asia. It's been hot & dry here so I hope that it germinates and feels at home. A waterwise plant!

OT but is it true you can't sow zinnias in the same place 2 years in a row? Or same deck container?

Meadows - you are too funny - !! No way - plus, I thought tonight was deadline, hmm - haha.

R U kidding me? I got stuff growing out of milk jugs everywhere - thankfully my neighbors are even sharing nice beds for me to play in!!!! I am gonna try and do a few more.. but nothing wild and crazy - already too wild and crazy around here!!!!

ok - let's see what we can work out.. esp since you are TEAM ZONE 7 (and didn't trade-out on us earlier in the year;).... jodie's zone 5, so her wild and crazy self is only on the "P's" - she's got a few more hundred coming.. you have 5 more types to sow, and are probably gonna want to do a few of each (and I'll assume you may have a variety of each type) - hmm.. what are you shooting for, and it'll give me final boost to sow some seeds.. WHAT!@#@$.. gotta be crazy - I got morning glories, zinnia's - already sprouted.. but - could do some sunflowers and aster :) I'm gonna need a little incentive. haha.. it sounds.. like I need to make some coffee!!!! Let me know!


 o
RE: Zone Wars!! Official Container Count for 2010/11 Part 6

I never thought I would be posting down to the wire... but please add 6 more for z4. The peas I sowed earlier haven't started sprouting yet and I'm nervous they rotted instead. :-( SO, I sowed 6 more containers of peas tonight! Whew, can't wait to start planting stuff out!

RE: Zone Wars!! Official Container Count for 2010/11 Part 6

Ok........ Let's have some fun here.... I found out after I started posting for zone 5 that I am actually zone 6. I'm close to the lake so that bumps me up a zone I guess. I looked at several websites that checked my zone via zip code and they all came back ZONE 6! Sorry I assumed I was zone 5. Recently moved... Newbie mistake. ;)

So I would like really like to move my 1209 containers to zone 6!!! Sorry
zone 5 but you win every year so I don't feel sorry for ya! ;). You can still
win this year but you'll have to work last minute for it...

So the final count so far would look something like
Zone 5- 5300
Zone 6- 5600
Zone 7- 4700 with meadows and ldsluder doing a big push to the end!!!

So I think it's ANYONES GAME TO WIN!!!!

PLEASE DON'T HATE ME FOR DOING THIS!!! it's in the spirit of some good, clean, FUN competition!! Hahahahahahahaha

GAME ON!!!!!!!!

Meadows Zone 7 1087
(controlled myself so you could rest tonight Lisa)

We planted out 400 today, gave 50 away, have 10 that I fried and have 60 that did not germinate yet. Those that have yet to germinate will be planted in a ditch my honey dug today to give them a second chance and get them off the grass!

What a wonderful year. Thanks for all the seeds, the advice, the encouragement and a special thanks to the counters.

We went to check on our summer seasonal campsite, where I planted a batch of seeds before we closed for the season. As long as you count October sowing, then I have an additional 53 containers to add to the count in zone 6! About half of them had sprouted, too. :)

This batch was a total leap of faith, sowing knowing I would not even be able to look at them until now, and not be able to plant them for a few more weekends.

Full disclosure...

After reading Jodie's announcement, I went to the National Gardening Association site (http://www.garden.org/zipzone/index.php) to check the Gardening Zone of my new home by zip code 02675. I was rather shocked to find that I am in Zone 6A and not Zone 7 as I have been reporting. This morning I Googled C. L. Fornari, a local Cape Cod writer, gardening expert, professional speaker, radio host and master gardener. She speaks of Cape Cod as being in Zone 6. To verify this new found information, I called the Cape Cod Cooperative Extension and they confirmed that I am indeed in Zone 6.

Soooooooooooo... Was this year of Winter Sowing scripted by O. Henry, master of surprise endings?
