Säfstaholmskål from seed to seed

The most important crop of the year is finally in place

You may remember our greenhouse design from this spring, now after a season of tomatoes. After the frost we moved the greenhouse to a more prominent position in the garden and now our Säfstaholmskål is in place. Out of hundreds of plants we selected the best too go to my friend Matti to be used for growing seeds next summer. We also selected 42 plants that we are going to grow seeds on here at the farm. To protect them from the winter cold we put the greenhouse on top of them. In spring when the plants start to grow we lift the greenhouse off after they have proved shelter for our most important crop. Growing seeds isn’t just fun it’s also crucial for preserving our heritage varieties of vegetables
