Garden Design: Soil, Site and Self
Seedlings Started in Eggshells
The days and are getting longer, and the sun is feeling warmer (or it could just be wishful thinking!). This morning I turned my calendar to the second month of the year, and that does make us a little closer to gardening season.

For many home gardeners, it is time to start your seeds. So we have a new article on Seed Starting for Vegetable Gardens for you in our Site category. For a companion article, check out our previously featured article on Reading a Seed Catalog. Ode to the Plants We Live With is our Site article and Winter Soil remains our Soil article.

Wishing you a wonderful time with your seed starting!
