Mist system for pepper trial

IMG_2282After getting all the pepper seeds for the trial into seed trays, a mist irrigation system was setup to keep the soil evenly moist and assist germination.


Seeding Peppers for the Pepper Trial

Since it was rainy on Tuesday, we seeded 15 different varieties of peppers for a pepper trial. In seeding peppers for research, you have to be careful to make sure the soil is evenly compacted across all the cells and all the seeds are planted at the same consistent depth. Research is yet another significant part of what we do on the farm each day!IMG_4224
