    Soil for seeds in the Spring of 2010. The ingredients are coconut fiber, sand, garden soil, compost and some partially composed grass to add microbes. Sphagnum moss is not used because it now comes in bags that are basically dust, and I consider it useless.

    The mixture is about equal parts of the basic ingredients and is decided by trial and error, based on experience. Constituent parts are placed in an suitable area, and thoroughly mixed using the Honda FG110 minitiller.

    Storage is in 20 liter buckets, ready for March 2010 plantings.
