Filling up the flats
What's a gardener to do when on a bitter February day? Plant seeds, of course!

ran out of storebought potting soil to mix with my stump dirt, so I'm
trying a flat straight and hoping the cubes hold together. Worst-case
scenario, the soil cubes disintegrate
and fuse into a flat of intermingled roots. Since I'm sprouting pea
seeds with the hope of getting seedlings out in the garden in two weeks
or less, that shouldn't be too much of a problem.
The real issue is that, ever time a flat germinates and comes off the heating mats,
I think of something else to fill a new tray with. Why not start some
kale seeds to replace the plants that are pretty much dead in the garden
for very early greens? And maybe some extra-early broccoli to set out
under quick hoops? I'm going to run out of space fast at this rate....
