Re: Round Those Leaves Up, Y'all

I use a similar system for both leaf storage and compost bins, but find that plastic poultry fence (about the same dimensions and cost as wire but green) is plenty strong and easier to work with. I've used plenty of wire poultry fence in the past and it rusts badly in a few years and then is tough to dispose of properly.

Re: Video: How to Start Seeds

Would point out that for most seeds it pays to plant more than one seed/cell and thin to best seedling rather than expect 100% germination. Also if you use shorter labels you can than cover the seed tray with a simple cover to maintain humidity and lessen need for repeat watering.
