Caring for Seedlings in My Greenhouse

The seeds we've been planting in my greenhouse are growing so nicely. My gardeners, Ryan and Wilmer, plant seeds into flats every week from now through March, when the weather is warm enough to garden outdoors. For now, they are being nurtured indoors where temperature, humidity and light can be properly controlled.

Starting from seed is not difficult, but it does require careful attention and patience. During these early stages of growth, they also need regular maintenance - thinning out those that are weak, pricking out those that are growing too big for their seed starting trays, and transplanting them into larger pots and flats.

Here are some photos of how we care for our young sprouts - enjoy.
