A Great Garden Begins in the ... Basement?

I love to start my seeds during the dark days of late winter. Watching them unfold alleviates the gloom here in Connecticut. It also allows me to grow varieties that are not typically available from home centers and most garden centers.

Sound like a good idea, for those who have an access to a basement.

BE careful
State police and sheriff's deputies in Kansas raided the home of Adlynn and Robert Harte, two former CIA employees, in a fruitless search for marijuana as part of a two-state drug sweep in conjunction with Missouri police agencies - all because they had bought supplies to grow vegetables inside their home.
