Growing our greens
Greens provide an essential part of our diet—year round.
We also grow a variety of other greens.
Starting the plants
I start the greens other than spinach indoors in six-packs and find that the germination rate is high enough to need just one or two seeds in each cell.
Starting them indoors lets me transplant the seedlings the right distance apart in the garden. Like many gardeners, when I sow seed directly there are either far more that germinate than are needed or very few that germinate.
(I haven't yet learned to cover the area with burlap or something similar to protect the seeds from heavy rains.)
