We woke to a winter wonderland early Friday morning with a few inches of snow clinging to the trees and covering the ground. It snowed most of the day with an accumulation of about 10-inches of heavy, wet, and sticky snow.
Even though it looks like winter outside, the calendar and my seed-starting schedule says it is time for starting my tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants seeds.
A recycled a mini-muffin baking container will serve as my seed germinating station this year. Each cell is layered with a bit of damp paper towel, labeled, and seeded.
The container is placed in a warm area and will be checked each day for seed germination and to be sure the paper towels are still wet.
I mixed up some soil and prepared a tray full of soil blocks. Once seeds show signs of sprouting, I will carefully place them into the depressions in the waiting soil blocks.
We were making such progress with the remaining winter snow melt. Now the garden beds are blanketed again with another layer of snow.
It is disheartening and I have to keep reminding myself that spring snows never last long and the stronger sun and warmer weather will dissolve this new snow soon. I really hope this is our last snow of the season.
