jack frost gives us little more

today potatoes got planted.

they are in that trench on the left. we'll cover them little by little as they sprout.

pear trees were also planted.

this is the bartlett.

we were a little late getting to the seedlings with chamomile tea. we lost a few to damping-off.

so we decided to start some more. here tabitha is making the tiny soil blocks.

it is kinda like the texture of peanut butter.

aren't they cute?

this will be a tray of spinach.

all in all it was a good day. i even got some plywood for more shelves. we are in need of places to put books. i also got some wood for the boys raised beds. they need to be like kassi's. the weather people are divining snow this evening.

Will you share directions for making the seed blocks. Buying them 'readymade' has cost dearly.

Question for you: did you buy your pear tree (and other fruit tress) locally or online? I'm trying to decide which to do. Locally there isn't much selection anyway and prices are about 2x-4x that of online (of course locally they are potted, whereas online they're bare root).

You are planting potatoes too? Doh, I think every blog out there has planted their potatoes but me and I'm getting jealous. We just picked up some seed potatoes today but the garden beds aren't prepared for them yet.

Do you like your soil blocks? We are thinking about getting a soil blocker soon.
