Getting ready for the growth

The day I got here I started to fill plug trays with soil mix in anticipation of spring growth.
Here is the "filling station".

Once I sat calmly to fill each little square with one seed, I load them up in "the console". This is a table with a covering of plastic which lives inside the greenhouse. It is heated from below with space heaters to keep the soil and air warm. I put plastic over the console to keep the precious warmth in a smaller area than the whole greenhouse.

Some of the plug flats are started in the hot sand console. A very squat greenhouse filled with sand and resistance cable to warm the sand and thus the soil in the flats. This is a very effective way to start the flats without heating a whole greenhouse.

Then they pop right out of their trays and start growing.

And then they need to be watered.
