Spring is right around the corner. Which means if you are growing things from seed, you have probably already started your seeds. My little seed tray has 40 slots. But going up to the next container size only fits 18. Two of them fit 36, or a loss of 4 slots.
Scaling up often requires adjustment. Sometimes it results in greater efficiencies. Other times, it results in loss. And sometimes those losses make way for growth to produce more. In scaling, it’s important to understand what adjustments are needed at each stage to get the outcomes you are looking for.
