After seeing how neat and tidy Mark's setup is.. I decided to buy some proper seedling trays and seed raising mix.
Partly also because I found my own seed mix have a lot of weed seeds in them and I have no idea what comes up were what I planted especially for those I am growing for the first time.
I got the seed raising mix, 8-cell punnets, and name tags from Pick'n Pay. Bought the trays from a man at Chandler's market who also have an ebay store.
Now doesn't it looks much more tidier than recycle punnets and pots of all different sizes? Of course, I will continue to recycle, but would be more selective..like same size pots for the same plants..
Here's a photo of what I bought from Pohlman nursery
at Gatton when we visited Toowoomba this past weekend.
The punnet in the bottom right is of a coloured Cauliflower variety they're testing, and I only got it for $1~ I've planted some of them around my newly dug 'hole' where I've transplanted my watercress..
The green manure bed is growing well, but the rocket still dominates over the marigold and mustard... we cut some each day as treat for the chooks and they loved them ^^
The tomatoes have started flowering, but I haven't got a photo of that yet... can't wait to see what fruits I am getting as I planted seeds from a mixed bag..
The top soil has been really dried, so I've watered more frequently, especially where I have just sown seeds.. and am concern about the tank water supply over winter.. I really need to get some mulch..
