My parents always sowed vegetable seeds around the edges of the plant bed. It was mostly tomato seeds, cabbage,lettuce, beets, radishes, carrots and onions. That insured early vegetables, and in the case of tomatoes, early plants to be transplanted. These veggies matured about a month earlier than those planted in the regular garden. After a long cold winter of beans,collards, sweet potatoes and, turnips, these fresh vegetables were quite a treat!
