Something old, something new and we are adding more permaculture too. Join us, U-Relish Farm as we begin planning for Sow Seed Sunday or a 12 week indoor growing season preparing us for the growing season.
We are planning to introducing more permaculture to the property including; Elderberry, Welsh Onions and perpetual leeks. While the Calendula might self seed, to increase quantities of permaculture we begin our germination cycle on Sunday February 6th.
Lovage for February 14th
Celery is on deck for February 28th
Nasturtium for March 6th
Chamomile for March 13th
Peas on Saint Patrick’s Day March 17th are a direct sow then shield with hoops
Asian Greens are my new crops on March 27th

Leeks will be sown on April 10th
Banana Peppers on April 17th
Hot Peppers on April 24th

Sunflowers on May 8th
“Loveage” the way we intermix permaculture with an annual crop. Now that you have your calendar let organize the organic seed to maximize our results. First I place all inactive seeds in glass jars and I store them in a 40 degree refrigerator.
I also number the jars for the Sow Seed Sunday hydroponic germination plan so that the calendar becomes just a reference tool. This article honors Slow Food Indy.
