  • Starting seeds indoors turns out to be a necessary skill if you want success with early crops that prefer cooler temperatures during the growing season like cabbage, broccoli and Brussels sprouts.  
    Setting out a young plant means it has a chance to reach maturity before our summer temperatures soar and the plants bolt and become bitter.
