    Anybody germinating seeds yet? I've got some chile seeds germinating on the heating pad now for June planting.

    I've got my spot tilled and potting soil mixed in, but I still haven't decided what all I'm planting. I better figure it out soon so I can start seeds inside.

    We'll start some seeds this week or next. Hopefully, this season turns out better than last. The August frost kicked our garden's butt- even under the row covers.

    Yes, I have been sowing seeds of legislative discontent, weekly, since January. I have been searching for some organic seeds of truth, but those heirloom seeds are awful hard to come by, likewise some seeds of real change, not this hybrid, sterile, faux change that is really a noxious weed, kind of like the Russian Thistle (tumbleweed) blowing around seeding itself. It appears that the perennial democracy we thought was well established, and took for granted, has become infested with a parasite, so sowing some new seeds of democracy may be in order.

    As to my herbs and vegetables, I start those this week.

    Sprouts galore. I'll put my garlic and shallots in this week. Looks like I'll have a good mix of chili plants this year for June planting. Mine are all raised beds or containers also.

    Anybody use cold frames to get an earlier start outside? I've contemplating building some.

    I've made a series of tunnels from heavy gauge field fence that I cover with plastic held down by rocks to extend the season. Works pretty well and about as cheap as you can get.

    Chives, garlic, and onion starts are all coming up. Planted the cold/early season half of the garden last weekend, should start popping next week.

    I've seen them here but with temps still down into 20's at night to come I don't know how well they work this early. I have a 6x8 Weatherguard greenhouse and the flimsy plastic really doesn't hold warmth at night down past freezing. The lower to the ground cold frames might work really well though. I'll be babysitting seedlings for at least 2 months til hardening for outside.
