WHAT TO BUY FIRST for new vegetable farmers

Source: Youtube We learned so much during our visit to Scott Hebert’s Flavourful Farms! Since we are deep in the process of getting started as new vegetable farmers, we are especially interested in where we should put our money first.

We then used our Hori Hori to separate the seedlings and replant them. Saving money by transplanting rather than purchasing seedlings is and excellent frugal way of…
