One of my favorite places to be! Inside the warm greenhouse watching the snow fall. ♡


Josh and I have been using soil blocks for 6 seasons now. Though they take extra time to make, we've found that they really do allow for a much stronger plant in the end. We use soil, add water to make 'mud'. Then make the block using the handheld soil blocker from Johnny's Select Seeds. We use 3 sizes of blocks. We stopped using the 4th size (3/4 inch)because we weren't able to keep them moist enough while the seeds were germinating and the blocks became too hard. The ones I'm using today are 1 3/4 inch. Our bunching onions, peppers and eggplant will go in those later today. The 2 inch block will be our tomatoes which will later be transplanted into our 4 inch block. The plants never get root bound and suffer little transplant shock. I make the blocks ahead of time and put them on our heat mats to get the soil warm for the seeds to be seeded. Hoping to have seedling sprouting in a week or so!! Spring will be here soon!
