I have always grown from seed in the Bio Domes and sponges...pampering them all the time until ready to be moved to the garden...I just start 6 weeks ahead of time or maybe 8 weeks ahead of time...never even thought about putting them outside when it is too cold...maybe I will get brave enough to do this with perennials but not annuals...thanks for the article...

It is a very good thing to recycle as many materials as possible, and you have done a great job of it.
Well done my friend!!!

I am lost...is this about recycling or learning to winter sow and not have to work as hard as I do on perennial seed???

I love to try new things, so I'll be recycing my soymilk bottles into winter homes for special seedlings and let Mother Nature do all the work. Got to remember to put this in my Journal. Thanks so much for the information.
PS Thanks for the pic.

This article really gets me excited all over again about winter sowing. Nows the time to start collecting recyclable containers. My DH drinks orange juice like I drink water. Each orange juice carton goes in the sink instead of the garbage. Rinse it out and poke holes in the bottom and it's ready for storage until I need it in late December.
Enjoyed the article Mitch! It's inspired me to start my seed inventory list.
