#SowSeedSunday

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.

“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.
