The results were pretty drastic. Here's some seedlings that were started on March 14th. The front row is all Oregon Spring tomatoes. See the peat one on the left is huge! I had to repot the peat seedlings this morning. The same variety on the right is respectable and healthy, but half the size. Yogurt anyone?

Post repotting comparisonWe have been hearing good things about Coir, which is a more sustainable medium than peat. If we can get our hands on some we'll run another test. A couple of interesting notes. About 1 out of every 5 seeds don't make it. Since we're hoping to have 2 of each of the varieties of tomatoes and peppers that we start and have 2 to give away, we start 5 of each variety.
