Coming soon to a garden near me...... a cold frame!!!!
We picked up these three 25" x 40" windows at the recycling center yesterday. Today we got lumber and worked on it. Finished photos to come tomorrow when we get it out into the yard.
While I was washing the windows for the cold frame, my husband made me a soil blocker out of scrap wood. I've been looking for more black six-packs to start seeds in but unable to find them without buying trays. I don't need trays since salad boxes work great for that. So the soil blocker is the solution to not buying more peat or black plastic pots.
The immediate need was a place to plant sesame seeds sprouted in a wet paper towel. My first set of sesame seeds never sprouted so I got fresh ones from the store. The fresh ones sprouted. However, I ordered sesame seeds for planting yesterday because I hadn't checked them in a few days. I'll have to seed the ones that come in the mail and compare them.
Here are my first two soil blocks.
