Josh worked at getting a clean space up and running for seeding to start, and this week it has. Tim started seeded celeriac on Monday and finished 50 trays, or 10,000 seeds, in 200 cell trays. He has now started on Parsley. He does this seeding by hand, every seed at a time! We do have tools to make the job go a bit easier, but it's still standing over the tray and getting every seed in the cell it that gets the job done. We are waiting for more soil, and when that arrives, and thaws, Tim will take a break from the parsley and get started on tomatoes. In the next few weeks and months more people will help in the seeding. We do have an air seeder as well, that makes the job go quite a bit quicker, but isn't appropriate for all types of seeds. Tim says he hopes they never invent a machine to do all types of seeds. He loves the quite rhythm of this time of year. As it does only happen once a year.
It's another snowy day here at the farm, but we are going to try and get as many deliveries out as possible!
