Potting/Blocking Station

Some pics of our seed starting look like a mess, but it's really quite organized!  Water, potting soil, peat moss, trays, tags, seeds, soil blockers, lime...

 This potting table is very handy, in it I have trays for mixing the soils, cleaning my tools and room for water and trays.  Underneath I am storing my trays and a bin for mixed & sifted peat and potting soil.  (In the background there are boxes, and boxes and boxes of canning jars.)

 I have my seed starting schedule, my seeds and homemade plant tags cut from yogurt containers, and a very handy sharpened paintbrush for planting individual seeds.

All of the peat moss and potting soil (containing some peat, compost and perlite) is sifted through this nice sieve John built for me.  It sits on top of a 5 gallon bucket.  I remove the larger piece so they don't inhibit germination or root growth, and save them for another use.
