Simply Resourceful

Simple ways to be more conscious about how we use our resources.

Homemade Soil Blocks

If you are starting seeds indoors, homemade soil blocks are an inexpensive way to grow individual seedlings without using a lot of those plastic individual dividers that eventually crack and have to be thrown away.  It has been years since we have purchased plants from a store so we have very few of those soil dividers in decent shape.  In the video below, Jon gives a brief tutorial on how to make these soil blocks.

I usually make newspaper pots, but this would be something to keep in mind for when newspaper is unavailable, for whatever reason.
