First seeds

 Today we planted our very first seeds in the greenhouse.  We made our own potting soil using Elliot Coleman's recipe and packed it into soil blocks.  Into these little blocks we planted several varieties of Chinese cabbage, 2 Asian varieties of basil and Japanese green onions.

We also bought 32 cubic yards of compost from a neighboring farm, soon to be spread on our vegetable field

  1. That is a very handy tool. My husband plants his into a flat of tiny little plugs (403, I think). Then once they are about 2 inches tall, they are put into a flat of 48. It's so much work no matter which way you do it!
