5 days ago, we prepared seeds and seedlings to be transplanted. We put soil in a half a bamboo stem and put some soil and manure to make a bed for the seeds. We put the seeds in the bamboo and under a roof. In 2 weeks we are going to transplant them into the garden. The reason we put them into the bamboo instead of just planting the seedlings directly into the garden is because they might not survive the elements that are too harsh for seedlings. So we put them in the bamboo and placed them in a shelter so that we can manage the amount of sunlight and water that the fragile seedlings get. Now we are just waiting until they are strong enough to get transplanted into the garden.
