I've decided to give wintersowing a try. Garden bloggers have been talking about it for a while, and I was very intrigued by it. Tina left a link in my comments, (thanks Tina!) and I decided to give it a try - next year.
Then one day as Mom was heading out the door to do grocery shopping she asked me to 'do something about the mess in the fridge.' This translates to 'can you organize the leftover shelf so we have space for all the groceries I'm going to buy.' I got a little carried away and organized the entire fridge. In the process I found some seeds from a few years ago. Five years ago, to be exact. I started thinking, maybe I should try wintersowing. After all, what's the worst that could happen? If the seeds don't sprout, it won't be like I wasted money on them, right?
The seeds I found and planted were Chives, Parsley, Oregano, Basil, Thyme, Phacelia, and Cilantro. I decided to put them out in my garden where the dog and other critters can't get to them, and I hope they're short enough that the wind won't blow them over.
