Why start your own seeds? And when should I do it?

Late March to early April is a great time to start many of our annual seeds. Many gardeners have purchased their seeds in February and are just waiting for the growing season to get started. However, folks get antsy for spring in February and begin sowing seeds indoors. I get lots of questions about how to manage seedlings that are long and stretchy. Unfortunately, the answer to that question is to throw them out and start over at the right time.
