If any of you live near a Menard's their Burpee seeds (including the Organic ones) are 40% plus you get 11% of your total purchase back in an in-store credit. They also have some seeds for 10 cents....I stocked up on Alyssum because it is so good to grow under, around and near many plants. More about companion planting another day.

Well he saw his shadow and we are supposed to have 6 more weeks of winter....and if it's a winter like we've already had it'll be fine. Started broccoli, cabbage, brussels sprouts, buttercrunch lettuce, spinach and parsley in my aerogarden. When I am transplanting seedlings from the aerogarden (which is a hydroponic system) into the paper pots, I fill them with seed starting mix. Coming out of the water, they need a soiless mix to begin in.
