A friend and i have decided to try to grow a few plants outside this year. We have decided on place on the edge of a corn field in a clearing near some woods. I have many questions and would really appreciate some insight from you skilled growers.. First off.. What is the best way to germinate the seed? After germinating of the seed, should i plant the sprouted seeds in cups? Or just into the ground where i plan to grow them? If they do in fact go into the cup, how big should i let them get before i put them in ground outside? And what is the deal with soil? Should i spread potting soil around the area where i plan to grow? Or should i just use the soil that is naturally there? Thanks to anyone who answers! Much appreciate it!
