I see my way as easy!!  To me, all the messing around in the frig and  
watching seeds in the middle of winter would be hard.  <vbg>   Guess I just need 
winter to recover and plan!  
I tried potting seeds inside one year and it was a royal mess, even with  
papers to cover everything!  Back when I had more space, outdoor  cats, and a 
green house (sorta) it wasn't such a problem.  Oh!  I  was younger back then too! 
I get a good percent of first year blooms when I finish my planting by the  
end of TB bloom season.  For me this is the end of May.  In 2005 some  of my 
seedlings weren't set until mid-June, and I didn't expect good bloom on  these 
in the spring of 2006.  I was pleased to see I was wrong.  I've  planted during 
a cool spell in early July and didn't get first spring  bloom.  Maybe it 
depends on the year?  Or the soaker hoses??  
I realize this won't work in colder zones.  
Anyone else  conducting experiments??
