Re: in search of


Hmm....maybe I should go get the 4cuft bag.  It's cheaper in the long run.
Only about $13.
I had planned to get both vermiculite & perlite at HD because I had a $10
card.  I ended up just taking 3 perlite to use up the card, since I know
I'll use it.  Interestingly, the 8qt bag (Scotts)on the shelf was much
thicker and heavier than the new bags he got out for me.  I suppose there's
moisture in the bag.  But then I looked at the 8qt bags at WalMart (private
label) and they seemed even thinner and lighter than the light, new Scotts
bags.  Still got a lot less for $11 than I would have with the 4cuft bag of
perlite at AgPlus, about $13, but since I had the $card it only cost me $1.
