This is our very nice Italian transplanting machine. We put the plants into a revolving carousel and then the machine does the rest. Miguel is walking behind making sure there are no misses. We bought this last September and have been very happy with it. It is so much faster than our sled we used to sit on. We needed to speed up the process as there are critical times when we have so much to do and the plants need to get into the ground on time. Plants arrive on a schedule that I sent to the nursery last December. This is designed to give us as long a season as possible for each of the transplanted crops. Parsley is being planted here for harvest from October onwards.
Miguel promised to set up a nice shade structure and install a radio this fall. Now Jose has trouble keeping up with the delivery of the plants to the machine and getting the sprinklers ready.
