planting the just right amount

We have started planting, weekly, for our vegetable CSA. Every week carrots, beets, Swiss chard, spinach, lettuce and radishes go in the ground.

We want to grow the right amount: enough that full sized vegetables are delivered weekly in reasonable quantities. It is a constant balancing act.

Homer keeps saying "there must be a better way". The Speedy Seeder is an answer...and this winters update to his version from 3 years ago has been working beautifully. 400 carrot seeds each week means 10 carrots per share per week without thinning! The next part:how to cover with the right amount of soil is solved with this box.

Homer does sleep. But I don't think his brain is ever fully at rest.
