Plugs have arrived and our seedlings are up! Time to get 'growing'!








Seedlings are up!




We grow approximately 45 trays of seedlings ourselves in our temporary greenhouses and we bring in 80 trays of 'plugs' from our grower off site.  The plugs will arrive this week and we will have to transplant them from their plug trays to cell packs.  The work has begun!  We love it!

Loving the product so far with our seedlings!
Everything's gettting off to a great start between this fertilizer and Grow Compost of Vermont's Seed Starting Mix.

And natural spring water right out of the ground.....and not from city sewer system sources.
