Starting from seeds
I live in Eugene and want to start some garden vegetables from seeds. We have some small plastic 6 packs left from when I purchased plants and can plant in them. Do I need a cloche to keep them protected at night?

Are you starting the 6-packs indoors or outdoors? Bottom heat helps a lot and good light once the seeds emerge. If outdoors a cloche would be a good idea, but most cool season crops can now be started outdoors from seed. Obviously not the warm-loving plants such as tomatoes, peppers etc. Tender herbs also need to wait yet a while. It is a good idea to wash used plant packs before replanting and use fresh soil.
Thanks Pat. I am reusing some old plant packs and I would not have thought to wash them first.
You are welcome. Happy gardening!
