Starting from Seed

The weather has been pretty mild here at my farm in Bedford, New York. My outdoor grounds crew is already busy with spring chores. There is also a lot of activity inside my greenhouse - my gardeners, Ryan and Wilmer, have been repotting my tropical plants, organizing gardening tools, and starting vegetables and flowers from seed.

We start sowing seeds indoors around February, a couple of months before the last frost in this area. Ryan sows thousands of seeds - all those wonderful seeds I enjoy ordering every year. Starting from seed isn’t difficult. They can be planted closely together in seed starting trays, and then pulled apart easily when ready for transplanting outdoors. Many of our seeds, seed trays and other supplies are from Johnny’s Selected Seeds. Here are some photos, enjoy…
