Dirt Cheap!

Seed starting time has come again. I would be dreaming of warm spring days to come about right now. But hey! We got the best weather ever around these parts. Freaky weird. I was able to enjoy the rare sunshine to get my little flats ready for starting seeds. Thought I'd share about a nifty little tool HH made for me. You know HH. Head Hillbilly? He's always amakin' me stuff, God blessem".



A perfectly simple item made of 1"x2" lumber with fine mesh screening tacked on. Great. I can easily shred up large chunks of peat moss with this puppy. A handy little mill for the cottage woman. Cause she be cheap and don't wanna buy the high falutin' bag of premium seed starting medium!




Add a good helping of perlite and mix well.





There you have it. Your own premium dirt. CHEAP.

Love you lots!
