The Clash of the Composts! vol. 2

The Clash of the Composts! vol. 2

It’s time for Clash of the Composts round 2, and this time I’m growing chives.  The 4 soil types are: worm castings, tumbler compost, commercial compost and trench compost/dirt.

This time around was pretty much the same…my homemade worm castings and tumbler compost outperformed the commercial compost and the regular dirt by a bit.

One cool thing I noticed this time was how the commercial compost was free of weeds…this is due to the thermal kill levels of mass piles of compost, and it showed.  Perhaps that is also why it didn’t do as well as my stuff.

The obvious conclusion here, like last time, is that compost definitely helps your stuff grow…so use it!
