Letter from Publisher

For home gardeners, March is the time to start our late spring and summer vegetables from seed indoors. We get to try new heirlooms, experiment with varieties we’ve not grown before (fish peppers, anyone?), try new seed-starting methods (I’m using LED lights instead of fluorescent bulbs) and maybe learn a few lessons about what does and doesn’t grow well from seed. And if you’re brand new to starting veggies from seed, congratulations and welcome to the fun.
