Seeding, Seedlings, Salad

from Hudson Valley Seed Library

It all beings on a turquoise tray with a heat mat underneath and some plastic wrap on top. Seeds are planted.

After they germinate, they travel to Bruce's warm light rack for a boost. When they outgrow their flat they get a quick transplant.

The it's back to the light rack to push a bit more growth.

(Carl helps, but he'd rather be outside showing me his stick.)

The komatsuna from Hudson Valley Seed Library is delicious, a truly low-heat mustard green. We're eager for it to flourish.

Along with the collards, they're heading to the roof to get planted out in SIPs. After the coldest March in 17 years, we're looking toward 60 degrees this week. Bring on the salad.
