Start your seeds in good quality potting soil. This special soil helps retain moisture. Also, it feeds your seeds. It makes seed starting an easy job.

Once the seeds have grown to seedlings, set them outside for a few days. This helps them adjust to the outdoor climate.

In conclusion, starting your garden indoors is easy and fun. Plus, you transplant a seedling in the spring instead of starting seeds from scratch. This gives you extra time to enjoy those vegetables all summer.
