This was last years, my 5th year of wintersowing, have pretty good germinating rate. But for 2016 I am not going to have as many, maybe 75 containers.

Wow! That is one large effort at winter sowing!
What were some of the most successful seeds?

Holy cow, you are ambitious. I could do that many jugs but I'd never be able to take care of what is going to grow in them!

I don't know Jen, looks about the same as what you did. Rolling on the floor laughing

Errol, are those red turnips or just really big radishes in your avatar?

Whoa! What are you feeding them? Green Grin! I grow beets too but have never gotten them that big! You must have a pretty good sized garden.

Wow that is awesome, I am trying my first year of winter sowing outside, with the jug method outside vs the same species inside to see which works better. I am going to sow some annuals, perennials, and edibles. I hope I have even a fraction of your success, that will be exciting.

Welcome! Welcome! Welcome!
Welcome to ATP, Kim.
Keep us posted with your progress with these plants.
That is a good idea to compare the indoor sowing with winter sowing.

Impressive beets! I just made two lasagna/hugel beds this fall. I hope my beets get that big!

I just did my winter sowing today. I did mesculun mix, pac choi, spinach, and romaine lettuce.
