START YOUR SEEDS
Vegetables are divided into cool-season and warm-season. To get a jump on spring planting, you can start seedlings for warm-weather crops such as tomatoes, peppers and squash indoors with the help of a grow light. In warmer climates, seeds can be started indoors as early as January and February, but check the date of the last frost in your area to plan your indoor seed-start date.

How to Sow Indoors
When starting seeds indoors, use a mix of soilless peat moss and equal parts vermiculite and perlite. Use clean containers for starting seeds, whether small growing pots from the garden store or even paper towel rolls. Starting carrot seeds like these indoors is an easy way to get a head start on spring planting. Find out how to create a garden calendar here.
