made some seed starting pots out of newspaper with this handy tool. paper pots are cool because when it comes time to transplant you can just plant the entire pot in the ground. I sowed some milkweed seeds that have been stratifying in my fridge for over a month. I have no idea how viable the seeds are but I'd be happy with 50% germination. I am going to repeat this process with false indigo and maximilian sunflower seeds later.
first lounging in a lawn chair day of the year even though it is a bit chilly. feeling much better than yesterday. began cleaning up garden beds and sowed some carrots and greens. the soil in the sheet mulched beds is thawing and the soil looks incredible. sheet mulching with wood chips really works!
I mainly post about permaculture, woodworking, and free software.
