Starting Seeds Earlier Isn’t Always Better – *why we haven’t started anything yet*

growing a garden is fun and can be great to start early. However one of the biggest mistakes everyone makes is assuming you MUST start indoors and that is the only way to have a successful garden.

    I'd always start peppers & eggplants pretty early, because they can be such slow growers. The rest you're still fine with. Keep in mind, Lake Michigan has no ice.

    I don't have much room indoors for starting seeds, and grow lights are hard on the electric bill.

    I have started seeds indoors (and sometimes still do), but my last experiment showed me what works best for me. I planted seed indoors and direct sowed, and my direct sowed seeds took off and grew much better, the yields were better, they were stronger, and BIGGER.

    Iowa here and I start seeds in February and March with the winter sowing method in milk jugs. Outside they sit and they get snow and rain on them. This is my 3rd year using this method and much easier then starting inside.

    Live in zone 6, my Pap always started his peas. parsley, spinach with seeds in the ground on Saint Patrick's day. I have done the same since I started gardening and have always done well with those early spring plants. Praying this year is the same. Have had cold weather but only a little snow. Two weeks of super cold ( below zero at night and single digits day) I got seeds from you this year but haven't started them indoors yet either. Waiting till the end of this month for tomatoes and peppers to be planted. We live on what we grow so praying for a great garden this year.

    I like to wintersow in containers such as gallon water and milk jugs, this gives me a head start on some greens and veggies. Works well and will be harden off at planting time

    Peppers need to be started early in my opinion.

    Enjoy your videos, but I have to add a little icing to the warm weather we southerners are having. I planted my plants into the garden this past weekend.

    Most of the snow is gone here in West Michigan. It's just the inch here in there that melts over the course of a few days.

    Work with nature, and you'll always win, fight nature, and nature will fight back twice as hard… 🙂

    That's not really true at all about the arctic. The reason is because … It's the arctic. There isn't enough sun exposure to warm the earth anyway. And here in Palmer Alaska were starting to warm up nicely. Have fun suffering in Michigan wink wink
