Plants? You ask, "Is that wise when a person still has 3 feet of snow in the yard?" Probably not, but how could I say no to an orange primrose? I've never seen an orange primrose. I have plenty of red and yellow primroses, but now I have an orange one. Hope I can keep it going for 3 more months. I bought an African Violet in case the primrose died. It seemed a logical thought at the time.
As for seeds, I will do a full blown veggie garden this year. A major challenge for me. I am not a vegetable gardener. Never have been. I've tried a few tomatoes with little success. It just doesn't get that warm for that long. The photo below is an example of my tomato skills. The parsley looks great. I have no idea why I took that picture. My mom is a vegetable gardener and a good one at that. She had to feed four kids, a husband, and numerous hired men. A vegetable garden was a necessity. Still she enjoyed it. She grew tomatoes, carrots, radishes, lettuce, onions, strawberries, rhubarb, peas, green beans, and tons of sweet corn. Her garden is always neatly laid out, weedless, and flourishing.

The grand plan:
My greenhouse is 6x8. A 2x8 row on each side.
The south side will be a 3 sisters garden:
Sweet corn, beans, 2 squash, 4 pumpkins and 2 zucchini. So some cousins joined the 3 sisters garden.
The north side will have quick crops on the bottom:
Radishes, carrots, loose leaf lettuce, peas, spinach, and cucumbers.
There will be a shelf above the north garden for containers:
Cherry tomatoes, hot peppers, green peppers, and maybe a big tomato.
