Think Spring! Start planting indoor seeds soon


It’s official.  Our latest snowfall put us into record-breaking territory, with more than 30 inches so far in February.

Believe it or not, spring is just a few weeks away, and this is a great time to snuggle up with a mug of tea/coffee/hot chocolate and start planning your garden.

In Minnesota, you can get a head start by planting some seed varieties indoors as early as this week. According to the Farmer’s Almanac, leeks, eggplant and celery can all be started by seed indoors starting in late February. Starting in early March, start cabbage and peppers, and later in the month add kale, broccoli and cauliflower.

Check the Farmer’s Almanac for a handy indoor seed growing guide by zip code, and find other helpful gardening tips, too.

Last fall’s early freeze prevented us from finishing some of our planned projects, and we wish we could have completed more of them. Here’s a photo from a snow dusted job that had to be on pause for the winter, but we’re excited to get started on it again in the spring! If you have a project in mind, this is a great time to meet and talk about it.

Give us a call or email – let’s get planning now!
