February is one of those months where boredom really starts to set in and everyone in the family is just waiting around for spring. One way that I love to keep us occupied and happy is to start seed planting indoors! Making mini pots with random household items, adding the soil, and planting seeds while listening to my favorite podcasts or with the help of my children is a wonderful way to pass the time.

You would be surprised to know just how many seeds you can plant this early one – I know I was! I had a heck of a time last year growing some produce because I started the seeds just a bit (or a lot) too late and this is not going to happen again. Let’s get to seed starting!

Benefits of starting early


Planting early allows for essential early development, and when they are transplanted outdoors in the spring, they’ve had a head start. This early start is very important for herbs and perennial flowers that take longer to bloom.

Be sure to check the seed packets for planting times, days to harvest, and sowing depth. If you are worried about growing seeds indoors for the first time, I highly recommend an indoor station like the click n’ grow (we own this and adore it). As a general rule, start the seeds 4 to 6 weeks before the outdoor planting season begins.
