Seed Starting Party!

Its time to start another round of winter vegetables.    I had help from my mother, Sarrah, who helps me on the farm and Alanah, a UCR student who is interested in farming and permaculture.     We started plug trays of varous kinds of lettuce, broccoli, cauliflower, swiss chard, spinach, cabbage and and basil.    we planted 14 plug trays or about 3500 seeds.     Here is a picture of my helpers, and all the plug trays under the grow lights.   The trays are set on heated mats to help warm the soil and improve and speed up the germination.     Sarrah was the boss and the second picture is of here ordering us around.
