First day of spring Seeding, and Transplanting away we go the growing season has begun.
Planting and germination is going well, the Cauliflower and Broccoli that I seeded last week have germinated. I transplanted the Cauliflower/ Broccoli seedlings from 288 plug trays to 72 cell transplant flats, and moved them out to the green house. The tomatoes and Peppers are direct seeded to 72 cell. A 72 cell tray has 72 plants this size is similar to how you buy plants from the garden store. Today I seeded Cabbage and Brussels sprouts, in 288 plug trays. I fabricated a vacuum seeder which plants 288 seeds at one time, it cut my planting time to 3 minutes per plug tray.
