Indoor Seed Starting: How to prioritize when space and time is limited

This weekend I finally got around to starting some seeds. I’m not super late for Colorado. Our last frost date isn’t until mid May, but I like to live dangerously and get some things in the ground a bit earlier if I can. Our growing season is so short, I like to do whatever I can to extend it. This means utilizing things like row covers, wall of waters, and early seed starting.

Seed starting implements: A January homestead update

About this time of year, I start gathering things I need for seed starting. You can buy things, of course, and I’ve done that in the past when I haven’t wanted the hassle of storing a bunch of saved containers, but this year I’m really thinking about not buying new stuff as much as possible after reading our January book club selection, How To Be Alive, by Colin Beavan, and we’re trying to save every penny for our trip to Paris later this year, so I’m doing the frugal thing and collecting seed starting stuff. I’m storing everything under the far end of my dining room table, on the bench Jeremy made me for a wedding gift, next to my winter, table top garden.
