Those plants are beautiful. I am going save some potting mix to winter grow the micros on a sunny window sill with supplemental lights if needed.

Questions/feedback on starting for indoor winter growing Zone 5:

I am assuming they will not reach this broad and lush growth in the winter months. I remember seeing mid winter pictures and they were tiny in stature. How would you compare the growth habits if anyone is growing out the same seed?

When would be the ideal time to start the seedlings for winter harvests? Is it better to begin indoors when the days become shorter, or start seeds in the summer and let the young transplants get robust and adapt to the shorter days and indoor environment.
