The weather has definitely changed, and with it we prepare to plant this season’s rice. Because of the chilly early Spring nights we experience here in British Columbia, we can’t simply plant seeds in the ground and wait for them to grow. We first grow trays of seedlings in a more temperate environment, allowing them to get develop a little heartiness before exposing them to the elements. Our seedling phase is now complete and we are preparing to plant over the next couple days. We will continue to post updates on the planting.
