    I bought 8 50 count styrofoam cups (about half the size of the solo cups) for like 20 cents a pack a while back. Planning on using those for my starters. I’ll just melt a hole in the bottom for drainage. Hope to be able to line them up in a tray and bottom water. Lowe’s had a sale on grow lights (still going on till Feb 5th) $14.98 for 2 foot LED grow lights. Not a bad deal if anyone is looking.

    I am working to make my own potting soil. I am taking the composted wood chips then running them thru this trommel I built. https://odysee.com/@Marthale7:f/open-source-tromel-that-rocks!-sift:a out comes very fine compost..

    Well, my links to Odysee don’t work here 🙁

    I try to be as self reliant as possible and with that in mind, I collected my toilet paper cardboard rolls to use for my seedlings which I can easily share with neighbors or pot into the next stages. I’m tired of plastic, most of it gets bridle and falls apart into pieces I end up having to throw it into the garbage because recycling is pretty much a lie as well. I’m going to use my own seed starting soil this year and will see how it goes. In previous years, I mostly sowed directly into the ground which often made no difference in the end. The same goes for fertilizer, trying the best I can to make my own and , yes, using Urin (I do have commercial backups , but definitely no Miracle grow), because when SHTF, we might not get any of anything so we’re better be ready do know how to do it ourselves.

      Exactly if we start making our own now, it will make it easier for when we can’t afford it, or it is not there at all.
