This year, why not try the mini-greenhouse, winter-sowing method to get a jump on spring vegetable planting? The soil in the mini-green house is warmer than in direct sown planting, and it’s easier than using grow lights. Find out how easy it is to start vegetables with this method and which vegetables do best.
Instructor Master Gardener Michelle Mero Riedel is a professional photographer and has published articles on many gardening topics in Northern Gardener magazine.
