winter sowing

Winter sowing is easy for cool crops.
Togo plastics with covers make great little green houses and the seedlings come up on their own when nature says to.
Poke holes at the top and bottom for air circulation. I planted these in December and they came up at different times so it was nice planting them. Costco chicken boxes are my favorite. I use duct tape under so I can read what is in there.

I was sucessful with cabbage, kale, swiss chard, artichokes, lettuce, broccoli, kholrabi, brussells and the like. Great and green because it reuses
togo boxes and the seedlings do not require electric lights.
