A Gardening Experiment with Miracle Gro Gardening Soil

This year we are adding the @MiracleGro Gardening soil we have seen so much on TV into our garden. We never add much of anything to our soil so it is dry and hard. It is amazing that the vegetable even grow because we never put fertilizer or compost in the soil. The Miracle Gro Gardening Soil commercial was so convincing that I decided we had to give it a try.

The bag of Miracle Grow gardening soil says that it is specially formulated for annuals, perennials and vegetables. Feeds up to 3 months with Miracle-Gro® Continuous Release Plant Food. So, that must mean it has enough things in it to help our garden grow but we will have to see.

It wasn’t expensive either. We got two big bags for $6.77 each and I think now they are on sale for $6.00 each. For the are we are covering two bags was just enough.

Here is what our soil looks like before and after we added the Miracle Gro Gardening soil. Before is the light colored soil.

Here is Greg clearing out the gardening area to get ready for planting. He will put in the seeds tomorrow and a tomato plant. We are going to grow sunflowers, corn, green beans, squash, Pok Choy, beets, carrots, and whatever else we find to throw in there. So far it is all seed based growing because we only bought the one tomato plant. I hope the squash  does better this year because last year we had a beautiful plant but not squash. There must have been some bug that ate them all.

We planted the tomato plants. We always get plants instead of trying to grow our own tomatoes from seeds.

Stay tuned for updates as we let you know how well out garden grew this year.

Here is a picture of our garden last year without Miracle Gro Gardening soil. We never did have a final picture so I can’t show you that.

This is the garden in 2010 when we first started it.

This is the garden in 2010 about 3 weeks after planting. You can see green beans in the back, then tomato plants, Pok Choy, peppers, and then lettuce in the front. The garden will look different this year because we are planting different things and most from seeds. The green beans were the only thing in this picture we planted from seed last year.
