First of all, I would like to thank Buyer D for coming back to share about her tomatoes success stories ! Really appreciate your stories & pics, so that we are inspired to have our own edible gardens ! (PS - All pics credit to Buyer D) Buyer D is a newbie gardener too ! She bought a pack of mixed tomatoes seeds as well as my pre-mix and compost. As she works in lab, she understood the cost of processing of raw materials when I explained about my pre-mix & compost. In our sharing, Buyer D explained to me that salt in supermarket are cheap, like $2/pack. However, the one used in the lab for pharma can cost as much as $200/kg. 😲 - yes that was my reaction when I first heard it. (See...I also benefited from Buyer's sharings !) Buyer D further explained that the processes of selecting the raw material in pharma is stringent and the cost of processing the raw material to a useful state (READ - Purity of its contents) that is safe and good enough is very high, hence the high price of our drugs. That being said, Buyer D, who is really really young, understands and appreciates quality vs. cost (In Chinese - 一份价格一分货) of my MOG. 😊 The other topic I wanna touch on here is a common question I always get from buyers - "How long does it take to germinate or flower ?" Seriously, I cannot tell because all of our growing conditions are different and what we used to grow our seeds are different. Hence, it is really pointless to ask me that question at all. The seeds/plants will need energy converted from sun and nutrients with the help of water to grow. Can't remember these ? Check those primary school kids' science textbooks. Hope I point you to the right direction ! 😊 Look at Buyer D's tomatoes seeds, 3-4 of them germinated within 3 days and 5 of them germinated within 6 days. She made a conscious choice to use clean and high quality MOG to germinate her seeds. Her place probably fulfilled some of the right conditions for germinating seeds. Those pics say a thousands words, I reckon I have nothing to add. Thanks for reading ! Happy gardening & happy holidays too !
