Now is the time we plant many of the crops we will enjoy later this fall and through the winter. This may sound a little crazy as we are in the midst of the summer crops. These plants were ordered back in January when I sent the schedule to the nursery in Gilroy. Here we are planting Italian flat leaf parsley. Unfortunately the seed was sown in the wrong trays at the nursery for our machine. Even so we speed along in comfort. A few weeks ago our sons Andrew and Eric were press ganged into working on this machine. After struggling with planting a difficult batch of onions they moved onto cabbage and Ramon says they remarked 'Indy for nothing'. We keep the carousel of cups loaded with plants, and the Italian machine does the rest. Now that we have this it is difficult to imagine how we managed to plant all our crops before.
