What to grow from seeds

Growing certain veggies from seed is always better. Root crops such as carrots, radishes, and beets grow better when we seed them directly in the garden. You rarely see these sold as started transplants in the garden center. Vegetables like peas, beans and potatoes are also good ones to plant directly in ground.

You’ll know when the soil is warm enough because the first weeds will have started growing. To prepare the ground, turn the soil over with a spade and level the soil with a rake. Amend your garden soil with compost so you have a nice, rich loam to plant in. Pay attention how deep you place the seeds. Deep down it’s too cold, so just below the surface is best. Keep well watered and you can’t go wrong!
