a couple questions

a couple questions

1) I am doing my first "real" vegetable garden this year. I've always stuck a few zuch and tomatoes in a sunny spot by my flowers, but now I want to get serious. I want to try to save money by starting with seedlings. I'm in zone 5/6 (Southwestern Ohio). When should I start my seeds indoors? And what would I start with? (Any links to good first garden guides that includes a guide to starting seeds indoors would be welcome too). 2) I want to buy a grow light. I am on a budget, but I also don't want a piece of crap I'll have to replace after a couple years. Suggestions?
