When do I plant toms. and strawberries?
Hello there! My husband and I are trying to grow tomatos and strawberries from seed this year (something neither of us has ever done, and neither of us is very familiar with gardening in this climate yet...or gardening at all for that matter, lol). I'd like to start the seeds off indoors then move them outside later, but we don't have any southern exposure or sunny windows, so don't want the seeds to germinate too early as we fear they'll either freeze outside in the sunlight, or die inside in the darker warmth, neither of which is a very good option, lol. We don't have enough space for grow lights, except for 1 little flourescent lamp in the living room that seemed to work well for forced tulips in conjunction with a little sunlight, but there's not quite enough space to try that with the toms. or straws. I'm guessing. So in what month should we plant the seeds? Thanks! I appreciate any helps or suggestions.
