I usually use potting soil to start all of my seeds, but this year I decided to buy a bag of sphagnum moss specifically labeled for seed starting.
In the picture below I have two containers of Heinz tomato seedlings that were sowed at the same time.  The container on the left was filled with good organic potting soil, the one on the right is the sphagnum moss.  What a difference!  I'll be using the moss from now on.

It has been chilly here for the last month or so, and things are a bit slow to take off this spring.  But, here's what's cooking so far:

POTATOES! Guess we left a few taters in the ground last year,
because we have some volunteers coming up.

 Lotsa garlic & elephant garlic.
