Our spring was way behind schedule this year - still shoveling snow at the end of March and freezing temperatures throughout April. So I've had to rev up indoor production. I built some grow tables in the basement and and put in garlic transplants. We test marketed them with surprisingly good success. We are now moving on to basil bedding plant production.Following SPIN's mix and match pricing model, each plant is sold at $3.00 each, or 2/$5.00, with customers being able to mix and match with potatoes, greens, and micro greens. Instead of our sales crashing due to the uncooperative weather, we've got good steady income. I see lots of potential for grow table production.
