starting plants indoors

11 years ago

We have a small vegetable garden which we've been doing for around 4 years. We really like it, but keep the whole thing pretty small and low key; we're not major gardeners. I have a sunny east-facing picture window and have started tomatoes and peppers and a couple other things there each spring. No gro-light set-up. I'm considering just buying seedlings this year. Between nice people on Craigslist and the improved offerings even at Lowe's etc., more availability of heirloom varieties, I'm wondering if it's worth it. Even with a heat source under the peppers, they're hard to persuade to start. I'm not saving my own seeds. What do you think, gardeners, in terms of the savings, variety and work, do you think it's worth starting your own seedlings?
