Our current planting includes the following: Broccoli, Cauliflower, Leeks, Celery, Eggplant, Kale, Tomatillo's and a selection of herbs. The herbs are the easiest thing to plant as we want more than one plant to grow in each cell so we just sprinkle some seeds into each one. With all the veggies we are more particular and only want one seed per cell. This can be very tricky with things such as celery that has tiny little seeds like the head of a pin. Honestly I'm sure when they are that small there is more than one going into each cell.
|Planted trays. You can see a little white thermometer to the left. It was almost 40 today in the greenhouse.|
The more time consuming part of the planting process is cleaning the heat bench after being unused all winter. Generally there is just some dirt that need to be swept up and luckily we had already done this. However we do have a low spot in the very middle of the bench where we always have problems with water collecting especially after it rains. Well I knew there was some water we need to get off the bench so on our way to the greenhouse we stopped and picked up a sponge to soak up the water.
|I know pretty nice sponge eh! It was even made in Canada.|
|Nice sludge water from the table. Probably would be great on the garden.|
|Post water removal on the table. You can see that the sand under the plastic is also wet.|
|These were the baskets that went out on our the last week. Full of tasty food all from our farm.|
