I cannot declare total success on the soil blocks yet. One whole tray has not sprouted a single seed yet. Which interestingly enough was the one that had the granulated rock dust on the tops. Interesting… but I’m not ready to draw a conclusion on that. Especially considering different seeds were put in those blocks and one other tray only has a couple of sprouts too and it received the soil as a seed cover. In any case, here are some pictures. Again, I’m not a photographer…
Broccoli! Which is good, because I have some gaps to fill in the beds.
This came from what my son described as the weirdest looking seed EVER. Anybody know what it is? You can click on the picture and see a part of the seed hull still on the leaves. I never pull these off… anymore… it never works out well. Always best to let it come off on it’s own.
That’s it! About 20 sprouts all together in the soil blocks.
I should snap some pictures of the sprouts in the main garden but I keep forgetting the camera or my phone. The peas out there are sprouting REALLY well. I’m excited for those. No conclusion yet on the BIOCHAR! experiment, but I’ll let you guys see some pictures of that when we get further along.
