Don’t put away your holiday lights away just yet! You can repurpose them to keep your seedlings warm. In this project, I 'take it outside’ and combine the lighted board with a frost cloth-covered low tunnel. The two will provide great protection from cold days and freezing nights.

It is March here in Maryland and we still have about 20 inches of snow on the ground. Folks around here are having serious cabin fever. I am getting ready to haul out the flats and potting medium in my greenhouse and start a few flats of green growing things to shake off the drears and dulls of winter!

There are many, many lettuces to choose from, way beyond what you can buy at the grocery. And here's good news: the "exotic" varieties are way easier to grow, and way more nutritious and colorful, than that old standby, iceberg.
Some seeds prefer to be sown outside directly into the ground, rather than being started indoors.
There are two different methods you can use when you’re directly sowing seeds into the garden: the hill method, and the trough method. The method you use will depend on what type of seed you’re sowing. Check the back of your seed packet if you’re not sure which method to use.
If you live in a cold climate, you may need to get a head start on crops that take a long time to mature, such as tomatoes and peppers, by starting seeds indoors in late winter. This video shows you how.
