Last year, we started putting in raised beds and got vegetable soil from Maas Nursery. This year, my husband decided that we should save money by getting soil for our new raised bed from someplace else because it was less than half the cost. I thought you might like to see the result of that little experiment. The Maas bed is on the left and the other bed is on the right. After this photo was taken, we had to remove all the plants, take out half the soil, and add in a ton of manure, compost, sand, perlite and osmokote. Final savings = $0. Now we know! Maas soil only from here on out.
