You know I have been telling you that I have discovered the hard way how important compost is to a garden, right?
Well, I thought it would be interesting to show you the difference between produce grown with plenty of compost and fertilizer, grown by an old timer, and produce that was grown with insufficient fertilizer, with no compost, grown by a green horn.
Here is our little, meager cucumber from the garden with no compost. Can you see it there? It’s a tiny little thing, so look closely!
And THIS is from a friend‘s garden, who obviously knows a bit more than we do about how to grow things.
I believe we’ll be using compost next year!
