Soil Block Press Test

I made my first seed starters with our soil block press today. It only took a few minutes to make a dozen cubes. I probably should have let them dry a little longer before handling them. The soil mix was our usual:
- river sand
- peat moss
- red clay from our yard
I pre-soaked the clay in water to hydrate it. This left me with enough excess moisture to make a reasonably strong block. The dozen blocks were then put into our funky salad bowl green house. I planted red winter kale and a boston lettuce. I bet both plants come up quickly.
