As you can see from the pics, I started with a bag of soil, filled my milk and soda containers with the dirt and planted my seeds. Then took the batch out to the garden, but them on a table. Now all I have to do is wait for mother nature to do her thing. Here are a few links to a few sites I found on how to winter sow. Very interesting and informative.
I have put up the bird seed feeder FAR away from my containers and plants so they don't get curious and start digging through my stuff lol. Hope that helps lol.
