The First Flat

seeds2

The first flat of seeds for this season was placed in the seed germination incubator. Seeds that were planted are broccoli, collards, kale, and spinach. They will remain in the incubator at an average temperature of 75 degrees Fahrenheit, and 16 hours of light daily, and moisture is applied as needed. When the seedlings have 1-2 sets of true leaves, they will be hardened off by gradually introducing them to the outdoor greenhouse during the day and bringing back to the incubator at night. This process takes about one week before the plants are ready to go into the garden.
