Garden Journal - Winter Sowing

I have read about Winter Sowing at several sites and decided to try it this year. In preparation, we have been saving plastic juice containers to use as mini-greenhouses. Today, I planted 8 types of flower seed:

Columbine: Dragonfly Hybrid Mixture
Black-Eyed Susan
Blanketflower: Gaillardia Aristata
Purple Coneflower: Echinacea
Alyssum: Gold Dust
Dahlia: Unwin's Dwarf, mixed colors
California Poppy: Extra Golden
Sunflower: Autumn Beauty Mixed Colors

We'll see how well the seeds germinate using this method.
