Laura asked how to be able to identify seedlings when you are growing your own from scratch . . . . I suggest winter sowing. . . . not only is it low effort and it makes you feel better about the winter (because you’re doing a spring-ish activity in the dead of winter) but it also keeps all your seeds together in one place so that you can definitively identify what’s what before planting them elsewhere in May/June.
I got a little carried away this winter (15 of ’em!!! yikes.)
