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

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.

I discussed the concept of polyculture lawns earlier, but here are my actual plans for my lawn.

To recap, my goals are increased carbon sequestration and improvement of biodiversity through cultivating a multi species lawn.
