No time for pics! Seeding is in full swing. The flats are filled and blocked by the dozens. The biodynamic Stella Natura calendar has the entire year laid out for specific planting days. It tells which part of a plant is best seeded. For example today is ideal for seeding all types of fruit bearing plants. This means eggplant, pepper, tomato, squash, beans, peas, anything that produces a fruit. Specifically it is the fruit part of the plant that is desired. Interestingly, broccoli is planted on flower days. Tomorrow is a root day. More leeks and onions will be seeded. Also the garden will be sprayed with biodynamic preparation 500. Rock dust fertilizer will be spread too. Looks like a very busy day, lets hope it doesn't rain.
