C says I use that as an excuse to buy new toys, but it is true. Having the right tool for the job makes everything work better, faster, and as a result everyone is happier and more gets done.
One of the other tools I am loving right now is my mini-blocker. As the temp rises, it gets harder to get things to germinate. When this happens I switch from direct seeding to seeding into mini-blocks. Its pretty fast, doesn't take up much space, and if I keep it in the house where I can control the temp better, germination is pretty good.
Tuesday- Every thing's up (sorry about the bad pict)
Wednesday-Just about ready to plant out or pot up
You could do this in big pots if you had the space and soil, or in a flat if you had the time to pick them out and pot them up, but this is really fast and very efficient. Nothing like the right tool for the job!
