North Carolina Vegetable Transplants

North Carolina Vegetable TransplantsSome vegetables are planted in the garden using small plants (transplants) rather than seeds. This is standard practice with warm-season vegetables such as tomatoes, pepper, and eggplant, and is becoming the practice with cucumbers, squash, cantaloupe, and watermelons because transplants shorten the time by several weeks between planting and harvest.

Vegetable transplants can be grown in a cold frame, hot bed, greenhouse, or a well-lighted window.
