Planting in a High Tunnel

Demonstrated by CCE Master Gardeners Ann and Don Cobb, this video demonstrates planting in a high tunnel, but the method is universal. They use this method of planting seeds in soil all year for their entire garden:

  1. work the ground
  2. open a trench
  3. water the bottom of the trench well
  4. plant the seed
  5. cover
  6. pat down

This method encourages rapid germination, so if the seed doesn't emerge, the seed is probably dead, a good way to tell if the seed is viable.
