Deep breath, it's January...

We are coming off our typical January thaw. We may feel like winter is almost over, but believe me, it's fury will come again to remind us all that Northeast Ohio is not called the Snow belt for nothing.

But in the past couple days I have heard a couple people comment that they feel like they should be starting seeds for their gardens. If you have these urges, do not give in!

Well, give in if you are starting some flowers from seeds, or onions & leeks, or some herbs (like oregano.) But if you are one of the majority of gardeners who only start their own tomatoes and peppers you have plenty of time. Really.

Unless you have a heated greenhouse you probably have another 2+ months before you will be starting these seeds. Broccoli and cauliflower may be started a little earlier. If you want a good reference I suggest Clyde's Garden Planner. But remember mid May frosts are not unusual for us and few things want to be started more then 6 (toms) or 8 (peppers) weeks before planting out after all risk of frost has passed. Last year May 12th had a freezing night for us of 25 degrees, May 22 and 23 we saw 31...

Now, spend a snowy day sitting in front of fire flipping through seed catolouges and planning the summer's bounty. You have plenty of time to start your seeds. It is only janurary.
