Planting small seeds into seed trays in the nursery

Plant seeds from the Planting Material Network to improve your family's health...
soak the seed in water for half an hour before planting
make a hole that is twice as deep as your seed
place a seed in the hole and cover with soil
pour some water over the covered seed
pour on more water as the plant grows
harvest the vegetable to eat when the plant has fully grown and leave the best plants to flower and go to seed
collect and save the seed.
