It is seed-starting time for some of us, which presented me with a dilemma. I had my seeds and my beautiful seed- starting compressed bale medium, but no scoop!

Ok, I'm gonna be dumb and ask the stupid question, what is Sunshine Mix? I have never seen or heard of it. Why is it so great? A pity this article was not run early spring when we all needed it. There certainly was room for it. It's getting close to fall now and I'm not going to be starting any new seedlings now.

I am so sorry. I sure did write it very early spring.
I found out about Sunshine mix from the ATP podcast. Shoot I can't remember which one. Anyway, i found it at our farm store, and it is WONDERFUL! I will try to get a picture. In the podcast Dave and Trish talked about Sunshine mix #2, but all I can find is the #4. It is WONDERFUL stuff.

Toni, thank you very much! I must say, I do not think we have Sunshine mix around here, I ave never seen anything like this. I would just love to find some nice good quality fine potting soil. The Miracle Gro is not what it used to be. Now it is much more coarse, much more like the bags of the Miracke Garden Soil that I buy for my flower beds. And all it really is is really old bark and sawdust from old sawmills, it's house rough coarse well rotted sawmill piles 4-6 years old. Used to, the African Violet Soil was very finely ground up. I got a bag this week, first bag I had bought in a long time. I was shocked at how coarse the soul was in comparison to the last bag I had bought. Things sure aren't what they used to be for sure. They cut the quantity down and the quality all the time thinking we are stupid and don't notice, all the while jacking the prices up.
