As an OSU student who's a first time gardener and moves every summer, I have decided to use grow bags for my vegetable garden. Since I am planning to use a few 5 gallon bags and a couple of 10 gal bags (for potatoes), what are my options when it comes to soil. If I were to make my own, should I pick peat moss or coco coir? And what about vermiculite vs perlite? I was planning to do a 1/1/1 mix with two of the mentioned amendments and compost. Is there a potting mix I could buy locally that would be affordable and save me the trouble? I'm currently starting cukes, squash, and a few varieties of tomatoes and peppers.
