Holland Marsh planting underway

This young Holland Marsh farmer, near Ansnorveldt, brought out from the greenhouse his first round of young cauliflower, cabbage and broccoli which will likely be planted in the black marsh soil in the next few days.   Below, further south on Dufferin Street, a newly planted field of young onions gets a head start on most of the other fields in the immediate area. 
In the bottom photo, planters start to  disembark from a mechanical planter after finishing several rows of onion-planting.   The covered, weather-proof planter was transporting almost  ten men, when under way.
