I'm in the process of putting in my garden beds in my yard and just wanted to share the progress.  I went with stone which absorbs heat during the day, keeping the soil cooler and not burning your roots, and releases that heat into the soil at night keeping it warmer.  I'm quickly planting as I complete each bed!  There will be 10 of them when we're done.

Sustainable Seed Starting April Class

I have put the links to the videos from our Seed Starting class on the right under LINKS.  You can view the clam shell, closed system demonstration by Caleb Warnock, and the Soil Blocking demonstration by Clarence Whetten.

I have had great success using my sprouting bins with hot water to sprout my seeds before planting them.  They are sprouting quickly and I only plant the seeds that germinate, or sprout.
