Yes, I understand that these are not USDA zones but they're a great place to start.
Starting seeds indoors in February is a great way to get your garden started early and have a thriving garden. Seeds can be grown under light or in an area that gets plenty of sun. I've seen quite a few people set up in their garage with lights and shelves. It can be done!
I have said this in EVERY post so far...Grow Herbs!!! If you have never grown a garden and you think you have a brown thumb...Try Basil!!!
Seed varieties to get started in February include: Cabbage, Celery, Endive, Kale, Leeks, Lettuce, Onion, Radiccio, Spinach and Herbs.

My advice to anyone getting started:
-Plant ONLY Heirloom Seeds. Find out why...
-Plant Basil!!! It's easy.
-More easy varieties are: lettuce, beets, radish, turnips and borage.
-Try Peat Pellets for seed-starting made easy.
-Plant more seeds than you think you'll need. Stuff happens!
-Take notes or keep a log of what works, what didn't work, questions and comments. Or blog about it!
If you are looking for additional help for natural or organic pest control check out "Natural and Organic Pest Control." I use Neem Oil for powdery mildew when I just can't get rid of it any other way.
Consider Companion Planting for natural pest control and healthy veggies.
