Starting off right.

You can start most vegetables from seeds sown directly in the garden. To get a jump on the growing season, purchase transplants, or start your own indoors in late winter on a sunny window sill or under grow-lights. Follow instructions on individual seed packets for specific planting recommendations. To keep your garden moist and weed-free, mulch around plants with a few inches of organic material, such as straw or cocoa bean hulls. During dry spells, water deeply once each week. Eliminate insect pests as they appear, using insecticidal soap or other natural controls.
