Rule #31-When it's too cold outside you can still plant your starter seeds inside!
The basement is also the perfect spot to plant inside with the kiddos. Mostly the baby just wanted to make a mess but that was ok too. We got in our tomatoes, celery, peppers and eggplants. John planted some sunflowers. I really need to get some parsley planted as well. I have the worst time with parsley and celery transplants so we shall see how it goes, but one of the parsley plants I bought last year actually overwintered and seems to be doing pretty well. I may even get a good bush out of it yet! We enjoyed our first round of borlotti beans from the freezer and I have to say they are amazing. Will plant a bunch more this year as John will be (yet again) expanding the garden. I put EVOO, garlic, salt and parsley on them when they were still hot. P.S. The radicchio and other assorted greens are doing well!
