Costco has Christmas ornaments for sale now so
it must be time to sow fall crops in the field. With cooler days and nights the
fall crops such as lettuce germinate much better. Last week Roberto was giving
Cory a seed planting 101 with our seeding machine. This machine we have had for
two years now and we love it. It sows 12 rows on a bed and we can sow up to 6
different crops/varieties at a time which is ideal for lettuce and greens mix.
The unit was built for us by John Bauer at Snow Seed in Salinas (www.snowseed.com). You have to
start with perfectly flat beds and have the 12 row brush weeder to take care of
the weeds so this seeder is part of a system. Cory had a great time.
