The more they grow the more obvious it is.  The plant on the left is grown in MiracleGrow and the one on the right in Baccto.  Does looks more and more like it’s worth the extra money.  Now, I’m going to start using the basil for pesto, salads and other delights.

I decided I should also try another plant, so here are the early parsley results.  Again, the MiracleGrow is on the left and the Baccto on the right.   Thank goodness the ones in the garden and other pots are much bigger.

  1. Speaking of soil, I just read a book called Lasagne Gardening, a no-till method of layering peat moss, cardboard, newspaper, straw, hay, etc. over your lawn in the fall. In the spring you supposedly have a rich bed for veggies, and full of worms. So, today in the rain, I layered newspaper that had been run through a shredder, compost that hadn’t quite cooked, and straw. We’ll see how this technique pans out.
