I sometimes find myself too far out there trying to deal with the woes of the world. I know that I can do more 'out there' by first bringing myself into balance. The gratitude journal helps.
Meanwhile on the Farm, it's a fruit day and I have been concentrating on capsicums.
|I bought some ripe capsicums that were on sale at the organic shop and scraped out the seeds. They cost me 50c each and I only needed the seeds from one capsicum, which is way less than a packet of seeds, and I get to eat the capsicums!|
|I put them all into punnets, covered them with more seed raising mix and put them into the underheater.|
I make my own seed raising mix using crushed basalt for drainage and cocopeat for moisture retention - equal quantities of each. It costs around $5 for a barrow load.
To make potting mix I add compost so that there is equal amounts of all 3.
The potting mix goes into these pots which are the bottom half of tubestock, a hole is pushed in to the mix...
and then the seedlings are pricked out and transplanted. These are the capsicums i germinated a few weeks back.
|The hardening off area. The seedlings spend a week or so here before being planted out into the garden.|
