There are many advantages to starting seeds indoors versus directly seeding them. Transplanting can extend your growing season by several weeks because you are starting the plants weeks before the last frost. It allows you to closely control and monitor the environment when your plants are most vulnerable. Planting indoors also improves your plants chances of success because they aren’t competing with any weeds. While there are upfront costs to growing your own food, many of the products can be used year after year. In the end, starting your own seedlings saves you money by not having to purchase them every year!
