I'm back in my garden, and so are you. We dig up the compost, play with earthworms, feed guinea pigs, gracefully knock over a few things, get out the cement mixer, and start making soil blocks... before it starts to rain. Soil blocks mean you do not need plastic trays, etc. They let the seedlings have healthy roots, as the intelligent root system knows not to go outside of the block tying itself up, but stands by, ready to pounce into the garden bed when transplanting time comes.
My super simple seed starting recipe: 1 bucket my best soil/compost 1 bucket fully moistened (coconut fiber) and/or peat moss 1 handful of builder's sand You can add other stuff, but once the fertilizer I added got moldy, so I prefer to feed the seedlings with liquids after they get their first true leaves. Finished blocks should look like chocolate sponge cake. OMG yummm!
