Soil Block--Capillary Mat Trial
Tuesday, 28 Feb 12 Cloudy 0°C / 32°F
I had to pot up the rest of the coleus so I could utilize the capillary mat for the small soil blocks. This should stop them from drying out. I also potted up the basil and parsley.
The hub says he will make me a 2×2×2 block, but I am starting to have my doubts that the soil blocks are going to work for me in the long run.
I’m not giving up on the soil blocks……yet.
As I have been itching so sow something, anything…..I have resorted to saving the seed from store-bought lemons, mandarin oranges and pineapple. I know that the odds of getting fruit are slim to none, leaning heavily to the “none” side. Cheap sowing thrills for me!
The “plant shuffle” is in full swing as I pot stuff up. Thank goodness I have the rack in the kitchen!
