What feed did you use with the John Innes, no bought composts have an indefinite amount of goodness, you have to add feeds, whereas, if you pile lots of homemade compost on your ground you will enrich your soil and it will regenerate what it needs because it’s in good condition.
i never put any feed on my ground, just our compost. Anyone that knows me, knows my garden does really well.
So yes, I would argue with that if you didn’t extra feed your plants that you just put in bought compost you can’t use that as a comparison.
please don’t think I’m knocking what you call your hobby, collecting, food processing etc, if that’s what you want to do then so be it. You could be doing a lot worse, as Dove mentioned earlier.
