It's seed starting time, here in Tennessee. I start all of our garden vegetables, herbs and flowers from seed. Some get seeded directly in the ground, while others get their start in flats. I make my own soil less seed mix. For one thing, it's a lot cheaper. But mainly, I just prefer to do it myself. I thought I'd share my recipe with y'all:
1/2 part sphagnum peat moss or coir*
1/4 part perlite*
1/4 part vermiculite*
Mix and store dry. When you're ready to use it, put it in a container and add enough water, mixing as you go, until the mixture holds together.*
I use a quart yogurt container to scoop and measure the dry ingredients.
We have a gardening group on flickr for Etsy buyers and sellers. Everyone is welcome. Just be sure to leave any Etsy business in the mudroom.
Until next time.....
