I am using an odd assortment of containers this year in my effort to reuse things and not buy new - especially if they are made of plastic. I am trying to reduce the amount of plastic in my life.
And I have sprouts already! The cauliflower and broccoli are the first to sprout. I am sure the brussels sprouts and cabbage will not be far behind.
The weather outside is so not ready for planting. There is actually a new coating of snow on the ground this morning (very thin). Starting my own seeds really helps me get through the end of winter - watching those sprouts come up gives hope for the future.
