Seed Farm Update

Since the beginning of March we have been building up our seed farm. It’s amazing how fast the plants have grown since then.

This window is facing North so there’s not a lot of sunlight. The plants are stretching their stems towards the window and it seems to be enough.

We found the Bio Dome to be the best medium for sprouting seeds. The roots have a lot of openings to grow into and they end up much stronger than when I used Jiffy or a peat moss combination. There are some things I don’t like about it such as the use of Styrofoam, and maybe the housing has BPA. I also don’t know what the sponge is made of. We are not trying to be 100% organic so we have accepted this method as long as we make sure our growing methods are mostly organic. With 60 “cells”, it is more than enough for our needs.
