“Happy soil, happy plants,” is what we always say. As I pass down the knowledge to my not so little boys, we dedicate a lot of time focusing on this.
D.J. my 7 yr old enjoys cutting the palm tree fibers. In our potting mix recipe we mention using coir, yet at times we also use palm tree fibers (usually from the fan palm, which we find in our way to the park)
And well, there is always Bae chewing on the fibers. His own way helping.
Mix it up with some soil and we are ready to trasplant!
