Seed starting may commence soon - before you do, check the seeds you stored last fall to see if they are good to go, order some new ones, and assemble the supplies you'll need.

A dry place that's protected from wind and rain is the place you'll need to start your seeds. If you have a basement, a bright window or even grow lights will be necessary for the light that developing seedlings need. A cold frame is adequate for starting things like any of the cold hardy crops such as greens, spinach, cabbage, kale and broccoli.

You can learn more about how to start seeds here, so get everything assembled, the soil mix, pots or flats, and of course, the seed packages to tell you the lead time you'll need for each type of seed.

A calendar really helps plan out the seeding schedule so that seedlings aren't ready too early to plant them out.
