    Heated Greenhouse Table

    Heated Greenhouse Table

    Heated greenhouse tables serve two main purpose on the small market garden veggie farm. First, it offers a place with a fairly constant temperature to ensure high germination rates. Not too unlike the Sweat Box Germination Chamber (http://farmhack.net/tools/sweat-box-germination-chamber), However, this tool allows us to continue growing the seedlings under optimal conditions until they get a bit stronger. Secondly, we can get some onion plants out to the greenhouse to free up room in our seedling room. We start onions and greenhouse tomatoes under lights in the basement, then move them out to the greenhouse when we are ready to start heating the greenhouse/nursery.

Our Farm Hack Ithaca conversation explored ideas to mechanize this hand-selection and planting process. Not sure if this description is properly placed in this location on website. Apologies from a new user.
