Lettuce Contest Day 23

Here is an update on the race of the romaine lettuce: Team Red Wiggler (left) is unquestionably winning against the Team Potting Soil (right).
<--Day 23
The results are shocking. Clearly, Team Red Wiggler's compost-fed lettuce is more lush and larger than the feeble romaine grown on potting soil.

Both are being watered occasionally with liquid synthetic fertilizer, to make up for the basic deficiencies of plain potting soil. I am amazed at the difference!
<-- Day 16, for comparison

What a wonderful blog you have! I love the team red wiggler v. potting soil challenge ... it is amazing to see how advanced the wigglers are.

I am looking forward to learning more about gardening north of here. (And I think gardening in Regina is a challenge!)

Glad you've joined the Saskblogs! I have added you to my 'playing in the dirt' bloglinks!!
