So, whats that?
Hopefully that's my new soil blockers - all the way from the UK!
Oh, what are they?
Well,. they are little thingies to make soil blocks to plant seeds in. Look, there is a tiny one and a bigger one.
So how did you go?
Well, OK on my first attempt. I need some practice with making the soil mix I think. I used a mix of very fine compost from work, some coconut fibre and some sand. OH, and a bit of dolomite and seaweed. I think the tiny block mix needs to be quite wet and dense - less coco perhaps, and the bigger blocks perhaps need more coco...... Its all a bit exciting though. No plastic, no transplant shock. There is even a little attachment for the larger blocker that makes an indent the same size as the tiny ones on the top, so that I can stick the tiny soil blocks directly into the larger ones - sort of planting on the best seedlings.....
You take this whole food production thing very seriously don't you?
