Today it is 70 degrees and sunny. In a few days a chance of snow! That’s spring time in Denver. I’ve learned the hard way it’s true what they say about never planting outdoors before Mother’s Day. Sometimes even that can be too early! A deep freeze can still happen in early May!
Another obstacle gardening in Denver is the spring hail. That is why I start my plants from seed. I like to have back-up plants incase hail gets me early in the spring. In fact my back up plants have back ups!
Buying plants that are already 4-5 inches tall can be expensive when your buying a lot. Starting from seed I can grow 216 plants for less than $20. Best part about growing so many plants is that I can share extras! I’ll let you all know what’s available!
