Learning Week

What a deliciously warm long weekend we just had!  Over and above sowing more seeds indoors we were able to open the greenhouse doors, clean up a couple of table tops in preparation for the incoming seed trays and we washed and disinfected a few hundred trays.  Now, each day when I sow new seeds I don’t have to take the hour or so to scrub and disinfect each tray.  Whew. 


Microgreens were really popular last week so let’s eat more this week.  I’ll keep these going until the big veggies start to grow for us.

sunflower shoots

You also let me how much you liked last week’s new sprout addition – Broccoli Brassica Blend.  I grew them for a customer who asked.  So like a smarty pants I figured I’d make double the amount this week.  Nope.  It would be easier if I had seeds to do this.  I had a little bit, which prompted me to put in an order to Sprout Master which arrived today.  They have such good service.

Today, I was at the college learning about Selling Food to Ontario.  Quite a diverse panel of knowledgeables informed us of labelling requirements for our food.  There was a good mix of attendees who asked some pretty interesting questions.  It was a learning experience for sure.  I forgot how those fluorescent overhead lights suck the energy right out of you so am tired tonight.
