This ties to yesterdays post regarding the soil or lack thereof in my yard. My daughter just pulled an all-nighter finishing up her project for the school science fair. She’s semi interested in ecology, but really, I don’t expect that will be the direction she heads. Anyhow, her experiment was to grow wheat grass in three different soils and chart their progress. The findings were as expected, though it’s still amazing to see the actual results. Here’s the photo. The row on the left is grown in sand taken from the road, which is similar in composition to the fill they used for our lot. The row in the middle is store bought, enriched potting soil, specifically formulated for starting seeds. The row on the right is compost taken right out of the bottom of our compost bin. I think the results speak for themselves!
