Every Monday....

The top priority each week is seeding. We harvest every week, so whatever gets harvested each week has to be seeded each week. The standard is two 70 ft beds lettuce mix, two beds spinach, one bed arugula, one bed carrot. Every third week beets, cilantro, iceberg lettuce, and Bok choy are seeded in addition. This keeps the food flowing! For a home garden I would recommend having enough beds (maybe 40) to seed every three weeks. Of course maybe half of those forty beds are full season crops like onions or taters, which are planted once, and harvested little by little.
Here I am with the greatest tool ever. The seeder. This one is made by earthway. It makes the job go really fast, and is worthwhile even for a home garden.
