The Q&A Archives: Planting vegetables

Question: I live in southeastern michigan and I'm wondering if it's too late to start a vegetable garden indoors from seeds? If so, is it too early to place vegetable/herb plants in the ground. I'm a beginner gardener and am not sure of the timetable.

Answer: Although you can start seeds indoors now, your average last frost date is about May 10 so you can actually sow your seeds directly outdoors in the garden at that time. It's easier to start seeds directly in the garden, especially for a first timer. If you started your seeds indoors you would need some artificial light, etc. So, just wait a few weeks and grow your veggies outdoors. Enjoy!
