Leeks (variety is Leek American Flag) have
sprouted in the milk jugs
that I am trying out using
the winter sowing method as
well as the seedlings below.

Spinach (variety is Spinach Teton Hybrid)

Lettuce (variety is Lettuce Salad Bowl)

Broccoli (variety is Broccoli De Cicco)

I also planted some bell pepper seeds
which I don't think are going to
sprout. It has been at least 20 days
since I planted them. I didn't have
any luck with them last
spring either. I finally went and
bought  plants. Anybody
have a helpful hint for starting
bell peppers?

I am trying out winter sowing. I chose the milk jug method. I have started out

I took coleus, last fall,  from my garden to keep them
alive in the house during the winter months and then will
replant them this spring.
