“This time of year, we are planting so many seeds in the greenhouse. I love to use a soilblocker tool to make blocks of soil, which can go directly into the ground at planting time.” —Martha SOIL BLOCKS HOW-TO For her soil-blocker tool, Martha uses Soil Block Makers (from $28 each,johnnyseeds.com). 1. Moisten a soil-less mix that’s made for seed starting, then pack it into the soil-blocker tool. 2. Carefully push out the blocks into a tray. The blockers have small dibbles attached. Use them to make a small indentation in each block for placing the seed. 3. Cover the seed with a thin layer of soil-less mix and water. 4. Plant the blocks directly into the earth when they’re ready—no need for extra pots.…

spring forward

I STARTED A LITTLE EXPERIMENT, and I didn’t tell anyone about it. I decided to stop checking email and scrolling the news at all times of the day (and night), and to start drinking more water. What was a great convenience just a few years ago (access anyone, anywhere!) had become a self-imposed burden, and on some days I felt frazzled by 9 a.m. Realistically, there’s no going cold turkey for me, so my plan was to scale back: Check my phone first thing, and then not let it lead me quite literally by the nose on my walk or train ride to work. I wouldn’t peek during meetings or at meals, and I’d sunset the thing come sundown. I did it for myself, my family, and my staffers. Living,…

birthday party

ON MARCH 6 AND MARCH 8 THIS YEAR, Truman will turn 5 and Jude 6. But for two days, they will be the same age: 5, as Truman is very proud to point out. These two bright, beautiful, and curious children are close in age and are also very close as siblings. They love sharing friends, toys, and living quarters, and they especially love sharing their birthdays with all the children in their classrooms. Each year it is a challenge and delight for my daughter, Alexis, and me to come up with an idea for a birthday celebration. Last spring, we developed an outer-space theme for their joint party, with stars, planets, solar systems, and intergalacticexploration activities. Our first thought was to take everyone to the American Museum of Natural History’s…
