tokyo bekanaAlthough it is becoming easier for growers to find vegetable starts for sale, finding organically grown ones is still not so easy. If you grow your own, you can get the mix of varieties you want, and keep them in tip-top condition until you plant them out. You can provide yourself with extra plants “just in case” at very little extra cost, and reduce your stress. You can bring the transplanting date forward if that seems best under your particular circumstances that year, which is not so easy to do if buying shipped-in plants. For crops to harvest as early as possible, transplanting will be more successful than direct seeding.
