Things on the farm are generally dirty, disorderly, or both. To help control some of this, we use plastic cement/all purpose mixing trays.
These rectangular, black plastic trays cost less than $10 each and are good for filling and seeding flats of plants, collecting screened compost, for gathering weeds from the field, or for bottom watering thirsty flats, among many other uses. Trays hold one 10″ x 20″ flat perfectly as well as one standard 2 cubic foot bag of potting soil. We have at least four in use around the farm right now.
Portable, versatile, and inexpensive, who could ask for anything more?
Don’t forget that volunteer hours at the farm, on-farm sales, and CSA distribution are tonight from 4pm – 7pm. We hope to see you soon!
