As I’ve mentioned before, Farmer John loves making soil blocks to start seeds. Typically he uses the 2″ soil blocker, but occasionally he likes to use the mini, 3/4″ version.
While I do most of the work in the flowerbeds, Farmer John does most of the food-type gardening. His favorite method for starting seeds is mixing his own soil & creating soil blocks. The genius idea behind soil blocks is that you start seedlings without needing hundreds of tiny pots. The consistency of the soil is such that it holds together on its own.
