Walking into the strawflower patch this evening I found many of them leaning after the heavy rains. Happy to find these crinkly little pink gems at the end of rows. Waiting for cutting tomorrow morning. I also have a whole batch of new ones to plant this weekend! Thanking the goddess that i planted them in succession inside in soil blocks! #strawflowers #rvaflowers #growlocalbuylocal #soilblocks

Our peppers were transplanted one last time yesterday. This is a neat view showing the progression from 3/4 inch to 2 inch to 4 inch blocks.

I tried a little experiment out and kept these suns in 2” soil blocks to bloom. I think I read it somewhere on the invaluable Flower Farmers Group on FB. It’s lookin good!! Nice little sun buds :) #flowerfarmer #sunflowers #soilblocks #wagrown #grownnotflown #skagitvalley #sustainablefarming

Here at The Sage Garden our focus is year round lettuce/salad mix production. Part of ensuring we have a consistent harvest is the Monday task of seeding freshly made soil blocks! Each week we start over 1,000 heads of lettuce🌱#columbiafarmersmarket #thesagegardencomo #cfmguestinstagram #salanova #summerlettuce #soilblocks The Sage Garden: CFM Guest Instagrammer from @thesagegardencomo

Some photos from the greenhouse.
Squash and pumpkins making their grand entrance 🎃
A few nasturtiums I have left to plant - I think these are mostly going to go around Emily’s and Mavericks fairy houses. 🧚‍♂️ Sunflowers poking up 🌱
And a strawberry pinking up ☺️ 🍓

More shots from inside the greenhouse.
These are the tiniest soil blocks ever, only 3/4”. About the size of a sugar cube.
Last night I potted these Lemon Bergamot up so they could stretch their legs, although they may not last long in these 6 packs.
If you swipe the photo to the side you’ll see I included a photo of a flowering Lemon Bergamot too, so you can see what these tiny seedlings are going to turn into: 3 foot tall butterfly magnets with delicious leaves for tea, and medicinal uses too! .

Soil blocking has become another form of meditation for us. We feel as though we are making our own little square planets for bacteria and fungi to colonize and help our plants grow. 🌏 This soil blocking set we got at the reccomendation of the great #jimkovaleski has made the process much faster and efficient! Try out soil blocking and see if it works for you, feel free to send us questions! #organic #organicgarden #organicfarming #nongmo #notill #nodig #nochemicals #buildsoil #soilbuilding #growfoodnotlawns #feedthesoil #knf #permaculture #sustainable #foodforest #forestgarden #ediblelandscape #ediblelandscaping #natural #nature #soilblocks #regenerative #regenerativeagriculture #evolutionary #evolutionaryregenerativeagriculture #era #eragardens .

It's time for these little ones to get transplanted outside! Their roots started tapping in to the soil blocks next to each other! We can't wait to see them get big and tall in the rays of the mighty sun 🌞 Happy planting everyone! #organic #organicgarden #organicfarm #nongmo #notill #nodig #nochemicals #buildsoil #soilbuilding #growfoodnotlawns #feedthesoilnottheplant #feedthesoil #knf #soilblocks #permaculture #sustainable #foodforest #forestgarden #ediblelandscape #ediblelandscaping #natural #nature #biomimicry #regenerative #regenerativeagriculture #evolutionary #evolutionaryregenerativeagriculture #era #eragardens

These soilblocks make perfect gifts. 💚 I meet up with a general practitioner once every one or two weeks to exchange languages. She wants to feel more comfortable using English with her patients and I well, you get why I need to improve my French. We often talk one hour in French and one hour in English. We both have a potager, so today I bringing her a few of my sprouting seedlings. #sowgrowharvestfeast

Hey look at these cucumber seeds. Cuc seedlings don’t like to have their roots disturbed and therefore don’t like to be transplanted. Growing them in soil blocks is ideal because the roots are much less disturbed when planting than when you use plug trays. In general soil blocks are just awesome. Also you use less plastic with soil blocking which makes them even more awesome #seeds #reduceplastic #cucumbers #seedlings #greenhouse #novascotia #marketgarden #farming #womenwhofarm #local #soilblocks #supportlocal #soil #growingfood #seedtoplate

The #seedlings are making the #transition from #soilblocks to #soil ... It's still bit cold at night for these #cucumber & #tomato seedlings, so I'll put some plastic over them for a few weeks more ... The #greens - #beets #chard #collards & #kale , however, are more than ready ... #sustainable #farming #csa #michigan to #Chicago

I started working a couple days a week on a local farm. I wanted to dive into growing on a large scale, plus the farm is woman-run. It's nice for me to watch how woman farmers move. The first week here, I learned how to make soil blocks and it's benefits for establishing a root system. Don't think I'm going back to plastic plug trays next season #soilblocks

Look at those roots and shoots! Soil blocks have definitely been an asset to our little farm this year, very pleased with the results!

So many of our plants have been transplanted outside and these little guys are getting ready to be next! We've been making so many soil blocks that a decision was made to invest in a tool set to help make them faster. More about that coming in the next post!
