Gardening - first attempts of the year!

I believe I started my seeds way too early in the year!

I planted rosemary, lavender, mint, basil, 3 kinds of petunias (grandiflora, hybrida, cascade), and portulaca grandiflora... most of them have already turned into seedlings, yet there is fresh snow on the ground outside.

I planted them in the beginning of February, couldn't wait any longer! Yet, most of them should be planted sometime in March, so I am a month or so early and I am hoping I can keep them growing inside in separate pots until it's time to plant them permanently and move them to the balcony.

I have an idea I have been swirling around regarding the lavender, but more on that later!

Stay safe!
