Growing from Seed

Another snowfall just hit the ground today, but that hasn't discouraged me from believing that Spring is just around the corner. I'm gearing up for seed-sowing season, and once I have successfully mastered growing annuals & vegetables/greens from seed, I'll truly feel like I've "arrived" as an experienced gardener. I've set up a light garden in the basement, and hope to get going over the next few weeks. Below is a listing of the seeds I've ordered or received thus far:
