Today has been another beautiful day - high was 76! Got a bit more winter sowing done - mostly squash and melons today, and all of my eggplant too. Spaghetti squash, Table Queen acorn squash, Delicata squash, Black Beauty eggplant, Japanese White Egg eggplant, Early Long Purple eggplant, Listada di Gandia eggplant, Fordhook Zucchini, Golden Bush Zucchini, Blacktail Mountain Watermelon, Honeydew Green Flesh melon, Baby Pam pie pumpkin, and Blue Pumpkin #2. I did all of these in the small water bottles, so I'm hoping for the best. It seems that other Winter Sowers rarely use anything smaller than a 2-liter bottle, despite the actual wintersown website showing directions to use take-out containers. I'm stuck for a bit now though because I used up the last of my duct tape and won't be able to pick up more for a few days. I'm already feeling gardening withdrawal (haha).

With the beautiful weather, more of the containers are starting to grow. We now have sprouts in the Churchill Brussels Sprouts, Yellow Wonder Strawberries, and Cilantro containers.
We didn't get the thunderstorm I'd hoped for, but I'll take the 76 degrees and breeze over the snow and cold.
