I started my seeds. I don't need to. I like to. Although I do grow a tomato variety that you can't buy as a plant. Burpee Longkeeper. They are tomatoes that store well into winter in a cool dry place. I usually have tomatoes from my garden into January. But just the whole process of starting the seeds gets me mentally ready to soldier on through the last of the crappy Buffalo winter and start thinking of spring! I get so flippin excited when the seeds sprout that its like Christmas! So here we go my fellow nerds. I will see you at Plantasia this week and very soon I will see you at one of our local garden centers! Happy gardening!
