Gardeners in warmer zones may be starting seeds indoors soon. I'm still just dreaming of spring. Today I'm enjoying a good cup of coffee and looking over my seeds in front of a warm fire. We already have a nice selection of vegetable, herb and flower seeds ready to start under the lights in our basement. We are especially looking forward to trying a watermelon from seeds saved from a variety my father-in-law grew this past year. Our favorite plants have been from seeds shared by friends and family. Those seeds bring forth special memories and wonderful plants. Just when I think there can't be another type of seed I need this spring, I always come up with "just one more" plant I would like to try. I still would like to find a winter squash to add to this year's garden. Any suggestions?
