Looking At The Soil Cube Tool For Creating Seed Starting Blocks
Because I just joined Pinterest a week ago I have been going through dozens of Pinterest accounts looking at home garden related pictures on Pinterest.
Just a few minutes ago I watched a cool video about a tool that makes seed starter blocks out of soil. It’s called the Soil Cube Tool and I love the idea, which can save me money as I won’t need to be buying pre-made seed starter pods.
The thing is the pods I usually buy are in a mess so the dirt doesn’t fall apart while being watered. The fact the seed blocks don’t have any container had me worried that they would break apart at the first watering. I have been assured that this won’t happen.
Here is the video that caught my attention this morning. Check it out and let me know, through comments, what you think about the idea.
I was also thinking it would be a mess getting them out of the tray but when I saw the set of tongs he was using it made it look even more appealing.
The product isn’t expensive but when I see an idea that I might be able to duplicate myself, well I just have to try it. I think I have all the tools and materials to make my own soil cube maker. Although I have some PVC pipe that is the perfect size so I might just use that to make soil cylinders instead. Making the tongs would be easy with scrap wood I have in the garden shed.
I love home gardening tips and this tool is a great way to save money year after year. No more running to the garden center when I run out of seed pods.
