Date to start seeds in doors.

Asked February 1, 2017, 12:59 PM EST

We will be starting seeds indoors for spring planting. Broccoli, cabbage, peppers,tomatoes. When should I start them? Also, should I use 3" peat cups to avoid shock to the plants later or what method should I use as to size for starting these seeds? I am using a grow light for this effort. Thank you, Pastor John Larsen.
