Wintersowing has made the news. Again.
Trudi Davidoff, of WinterSown.org fame, was featured on one of the national morning shows last year (I think it was last year - I posted about it somewhere on the blog.)
Anyway, it has made news again as a segment on KARE11:
WinterSowing video segment.
Although the guy went waaaaay overboard on the amount of tape he used and didn't mention to leave the caps off, it was a pretty good 'beginner' introduction.
It obviously took a few takes to get it right as they already had footprints tracked to the spot in the snow, as well as depressions in the snow where they'd previously placed the jugs.
And I wish they'd gone into more discussion about the depths (why he was measuring and marking before cutting) and that perennials aren't the only choice for this technique - some veg and annuals are also good choices.
There was also an article in Northern Gardener about WSing, but if you're not a subscriber . . . well . . .
It's about time WinterSowing started catching on like a house afire and getting the attention it truly deserves.
