Have you ever tried soil blocking?
It is eco-friendly 🌲 and very cost efficient 🤑. Purchased a soil blocker for under ⬇️ $50 and made 420 soil blocks for our seedlings 🌱 in one afternoon.
To make the soil, we used Eliot Coleman’s soil block recipe from 📖 “The New Organic Grower” book. Amazon link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/1603588175/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_EFT746ZA3G519956Z0HT
From this one (1) soil recipe, I was able to start:
• Long leaf basil 🌿
• German Chamomile
• Onion 🧅
• Peppers 🫑
• Tomatoes 🍅
✅ There are many benefits to soil blocking. This technique helps with disturbing roots that are starting; helps with air circulation 💨 for healthier, more vigorous plants; plants do not become root bound; reduces plant shock from transplanting; and eliminates plastic trays; and nutrient rich soil.
