From Seed to Delivery – a pictorial essay

30 April

Here’s a pictorial essay of the journey the veggies in your box take from seed to delivery.

First the field has to be prepared and the beds formed.

Next comes setting the pipes and sprinklers for irrigating the crop.

Seeds are planted in trays and sprouted in our greenhouse.

Once the seeds have sprouted and become seedlings, they are transplanted to the field.

Weeding among the rows is necessary for the crops to thrive.

The veggies won’t grow without water. Here is a field of carrots getting sprinkled.

Harvesting of the crops is done by hand.

A crate of veggies going to get washed and packed.

Once packed, the boxes go on the truck for delivery.
