Its Seeding Time!

It is almost time to start planting your garden but it is defiantly time to start seeding tobacco! Every year at SSF, Chris Croft takes a couple of guys across the county line to Cook Bros Farms and they each other seed tobacco. Here you can see the fancy seeding machine being filled with potting soil. This machine is a Horticulturist dream come true! It seeds 288 tiny tobacco seeds at a time. Today they will do 1,200 trays! Then they are double checked to make sure only one seed is in each compartment and taken to greenhouses where they are floated out on beds of water. In just a couple of days little green sprouts will spring to life!
