I had found on one of the forums, how to sterilize soil in the microwave but I can't find it.
I'll post this question in a few places. I'm starting some annuals and veggies in the new greenhouse my hubby built for me. I,m sure with all I,m planting, I'll need more soil than I already have. I have some jiffy mix, but I,m going to run out before I,m done.Does anyone know how to sterilize soil in the microwave?
This is probably not the best forum for this type of question.
I'd recommend only posting your question in one forum rather than posting it in several places. Most folks don't want to see the same question in a variety of forums. If you pick one forum and that's not the best place, folks will usually point you in another direction - OR - you'll get your answer (regardless of which one forum you post it in).
Here's a link to the Colorado State Cooperative Extension's instructions for sterilizing soil...
Just dont do it without wetting it down first really good. The smoke after the fire goes out is really stinky and takes a long time to get the smell out of your microwave. Yes laugh all you want, I speak from personal experience with peat pots. LOL
