It’s just about time to sow seeds indoors and here are some ideas to get you started. First, starting plants from seed is a great way to get exactly the variety of peppers and tomatoes you want. In addition, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant require long growing seasons and do best by starting them early indoors. Beans, peas, radishes, lettuce and many other vegetables do best when sown directly into the garden. You can start these vegetables indoors, but they typically don't transplant well. You're better off to seed them directly. In fact, many of these vegetable seeds can be planted in the ground in early March. Begin by selecting the variety of tomato or pepper you want to grow. For best results, select a quality seed from a local supplier. Feed your seedlings with a mild liquid fertilizer once they've developed three or more sets of true leaves. As your plants grow, ruffle them once a day with your hand. This helps them grow stocky and strong. As for timing, the first or second week in March is just about right. Starting your own seeds is a very rewarding way to extend your gardening season.
