GardenSmart: From Big to Small, Planting Seeds Can Be Fun | April 19th, 1:00 pm

Get a head start on your garden and learn how to grow your vegetables from seed in flats, 4" pots, and directly in the ground. Big-seeded peas, beans, melons, zukes and cukes are perfect for 4" containers and easy to start outside in our Spring weather. (Great for kids, too.) Home gardeners can start small-seeded veggies in flats and then transplant up to 4" containers. Learn what vegetables grow best directly sowed into the ground. Outsmart your garden bugs and grow your veggies big before transplanting into the soil!

She has studied growing tomatoes for several years, increasing her harvest each year, as well as developing her own vegetable gardens in both front and back yards.
