I don't have a lot of room myself so I use the square foot gardening method which feeds us for the growing season and last year I expanded a little so I was able to freeze extras :) Finishing up the green beans in soups right now so can't wait for the snow to melt.

Thanks for sharing. I am going to have more veggies this year than before Hubby is tilling up a garden for me. Not large as we have limited space I will also be planting in my patio pots as I hve done for several years I like starting the plants in the jugs
Thanks so much for this link! I started my windowsill sowing a couple of weeks ago, and have been doing a few more each week. Some of the seedlings do get very spindly, and it's clear that I'll have to start over with some. This looks like it solves that problem! If I can get my hands on some milk jugs, I'm going to give this a try this week. Thanks!

I posted the link to Winter Sowing 101 last year and although many thought it worth a try, no one had done it. And because we do not drink milk (or water) from jugs, I had none to use. But given our small space for seed starting, and the hassle it causes every year, I'm thinking I might lobby a few friends for their jugs and give it a shot.
The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.
I was just wondering about sowing and sub-zero temperatures and found this tested information. I was wondering if any of you have or will be attempting this and what kind of crop you are planning on using.
