Forgive me, I'm still pretty new at this. Just bought some habanero seeds for my hubby since he loves the really hot stuff. It says on the package to start the seeds indoors 8 weeks prior to transplant and then pretty much gives directions for hardening off the seedlings. It's already pretty warm here so is there anything wrong with sowing them right into the garden? Just wondering. The way my windows in my house are set up, it makes starting seeds indoors difficult. They don't get enough light. I bought a plant light for a lamp in the living room that was near a window but the squash seeds I started there didn't do well. I thought they were at first but then they got very leggy and didn't survive the transplant. Not warm enough and not enough light. So far, everything I've sown directly has done excellent.
