I can't believe how quickly they take off. I suppose when you have perfect conditions, it makes all the difference. I wonder if I could pull off a similar technique for the bare lawn spots I have left from putting in a pation last year. Thanks for the idea.
Is it weird that the soil blocks made me hungry? - they look like delicious brownies.

We're the opposite here..so much rain I'm wondering if my bush beans washed away.

This is a good idea, I would imagine peat pots would work as well too.

Your tomatoes are looking very good, mine are about 9" high at the moment so I am a little envious. I am planing on start mine a lot earlier next year as well as do the plastic tenting so I can plant them out earlier.

You have a wonderful blog, I will have to keep checking in.
Check out my veggie garden blog:

Excellent again! Soil blocks for beans and corn are the only way to go for me. Old timers can't understand this transplant concept. Although, there corn and beans haven't come up yet, and due to the cool, cloudy, wet weather, may be rotting in the ground. Not with soil blocks! They will sit there very firmly waiting for warmth and sunshine. The blocks protect them from invaders and they look very healthy. I'll be the first one with sweet corn in all of Oregon because I use early maturing varieties started in early May in soil blocks. Transplanting them is easy if you seperate the blocks a bit and keep the taproot watered well! More at www.pottingblocks.com
