    Just started my peas in the house for February planting in zone 8A. Anyone else starting seeds yet? What zone are you in?

    Looking to start some seeds that take extra long to grow in my zone 6 garden or plants that I always struggle with starting, plus a few experiments. Onions, moringa, blue butterfly pea plant, goji berry, artichoke, maybe eggplant, hibiscus, and I might play with a few more to see if I can establish them before planting out this year.

      That sounds great! I’m trying really hard to step up my gardening game this year by expanding the gardens and starting a lot of my seeds indoors instead of direct planting a majority of them.

    For peas to early or it is for the green tops, but we want the peas fresh and dried. Zone 8b but will start with bread beans, they can have cold weather even freezing. Will be early on time, before the lice.

    A bit early for me as I am 5B. Have a bunch of different Herbs going though as I can divide them if they get to big before I can get them out the door.

    I just started tomatoes, peppers, and basil in a mini-greenhouse. I also direct sowed a lettuce mix in my garden. I live in Central Florida

    I am in Dallas and found this website with seed-starting instructions. https://www.almanac.com/gardening/planting-calendar/TX/Dallas.

    There’s probably a similar website for your growing zone

    We are in zone 7a in Texas. Last year I started almost all of mine from seed. Ones I purchased just fizzled out

    Today finally a bit time to make the first sandblocks, time to start the pepper, paprika, aubergine, field bean, spinach, salad, onion, flowers and potato.

    Still winter but preparation for spring, feels so good it warms up a bit.

    Zone 6, Yes!!

    Mainly herbs and cool weather crops.

    I couldn’t help myself. It’s a sickness.

    On the plus plus side, a friend pointed me to the app FARMISH showing with pin drops on a map where local resources have the “good stuff”. I have found everything from herdshares to salves to so much oval chicken crack.
