Answer: Choose varieties that have the least amount of days to maturity. Start seeds indoors to transplant out after the last frost, to get a jumpstart on the season. (Root crops, such as carrots, beets, radishes, should be sown in place, however.) Generally, sow seeds about 6-10 weeks before you'd transplant them outside. Also, some gardeners like to use black plastic as a mulch to warm up the garden soil, which encourages seed germination, root development and growth. Plant in holes cut into the plastic. I hope these ideas help!
