I didn't think to use screen, is the screen sitting directly on the flats?
Yes, I put the screen directly on the flats. It's still above soil level. I don't have mine covered like you do, though. Mine are sitting directly on the ground, out in the yard. If I con't cover them with screen, I'll get all sorts of unwanted "volunteers" in them...and the critters will dig in them. If I had a little house like yours, I probably wouldn't use the screen.

And, yes, waiting for spring is even harder now that I've discovered winter sowing! I sit at my big picture window, gaze at the back yard, and dream about what I'm going to DO when winter is over .

One with the earth, with the sky, one with everything in life. I believe it will start with conviction of the heart.
