Though I wish that everything that I work with in the garden was as easy to clean up as soil blocks, gardening can often include a lot of parts that cannot be reused. Having cleaned up pieces of plastic pots and transplant supplies that quickly decayed and are meant to only last a season, I have done my best to utilize as many high-quality materials as possible.
Fortunately, today’s gardeners do have some options when it comes to the materials that they work with in the garden. While I prefer not to use plastic at all, some items made for garden use have no other material equivalent. So when the end of the season comes, I work to wash everything down and thoroughly dry everything out.
