It Disappeared!

The super handy seed-starting guide disappeared from the Penn State Cooperative Extension’s much prettier (but much less useful, for POD, at least) website. Oh no!

Fortunately or not, things never really die online, they just require a little more dedicated Googling. A little gift from POD to the gardeners of Philadelphia:
