so semi off topic, i found a hydroponics shop in town.

OMG... so first they have given me 2 gallons of thier compost tea.. which has made my garden grow twice as high overnight, i kid you not

then i learned about all the mycorhizza and bacteria the soil needs to alow plants to actually grow and added that too.

then i leaned that true green actually costs about 6 times as much as if you did it yourself (all things considered) and given that my yard is about the size of a postage stamp that is just inexcusable.

now there is a very real sense of life in my yard. almost smothering.. it is like a played a giant growth and a rampant growth on a 1/1 saproling and then added 10 counters - :-) (cool points if anyone gets the reference)
