|I haven't found a reasonable supplier of the vermiculite I want yet this year, so I'm trying an experiment in the meantime. I have a large bag of crushed corn cobs that aren't being used right now, so I'm going to see how it does for seed sprouting. I'm thinking that it may work about the same as vermiculite, but then again it might just morph into a lumpy mess. I'll just try some extra seeds that I don't really need at first...just in case. It would still be a lot cleaner for indoor work than soil, I think, and since it's bagged dry it can sit out on the porch and remain unfrozen between sowing sessions.
Happy New Year, y'all!
