An early autumn is the right time to plan and plant your cool-season vegetable garden. Many fun choices, such as colorful chard, crunchy snap peas, delicious lettuce, and beautiful broccoli are all easy to grow and most tasty when planted in the fall. But instead of buying expensive transplants from the nursery, how about growing them yourself? It's easy, fun, and inexpensive to start cool-season vegetables from seed. This talk will cover seeds, seed sources, planting seeds, germination, creating the right environment for strong seedling growth, materials and equipment, and transplanting out into the garden.
