Yesterday I watched and shared this video from Quiet Creek Farms and the Penn State Extension Service on the Growing The Home Garden Facebook page. The video has some great techniques for seed starting including a recipe for their seed starting soil. It has a business slant geared toward developing a CSA but the techniques described are very usable in the home garden! If you don't use your local extension services you really should investigate what they have to offer. They are an awesome free resources to utilize for growing in your garden!
CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. Customers buy a share of the crop and receive produce that is in season.
