correct times to start seed growing
This is my 2nd year starting from seed (last year I did pretty good for a rookie) and this year I plan on growing seeds in my basement instead of my garage.
In addition I already have ALL of my seeds ahead of time so I don't have to worry about starting something too late.
Some lessons learned from last year...don't waste space by growing cukes, zukes, and squash indoors. Just direct seed them.
My seed list is shown below. I need help with the timing of each.
I usually plant out in the garden around May 15th so I'm assuming Tomatoes, Eggplant, and Peppers should be started 6 weeks before then.
I've never grown broccoli or snow peas so I could use a little advice on that. I also have no idea how to do my annuals and perennials. Last year I started annuals indoors but a bit too late.
Here is my list:
Tomatoes (start indoors):
Black Cherry, Black Krims, Cherokee Purple, Cherokee Chocolate, Lemon Boy VFN, Mortgage Lifter, Brandywine Pink, Sungold Cherry, Super Sweet 100, Big Beef VFFNTA, Indigo Apple, Sioux

Dusky, Pot Black PatioÃ¢ÂÂ
Peppers (start indoors):
Orange Blaze, Early Sunsation
Strawberries (start indoors):
