My Transplant Experience

My husband decided to grow cucumbers, squash, and okra indoors last year to transplant, thinking he would have an earlier yield than the seeds we direct sowed. The transplants stayed smaller and actually took longer to produce than the direct sown seeds. I've only had a garden for 3 years and have always transplanted tomatoes and peppers, but I'm thinking about giving direct sowing a try just to save on cost and indoor space...maybe with a removable cold frame over them or something.

I really would not suggest direct seeding tomatoes or peppers
