cost differential

Somehow it struck me odd that I just bought a bag of 8 lbs of potting soil for $6 and a 1gb SD memory card for $12.

The memory card is for my camera.

The potting soil is for some plants. When I moved into my current house 40 years ago, a friend's mother who came over to help clean brought over a little Swedish ivy, a small spider plant, and a coleus. Some years later during a winter heating failure while we were away the coleus died (a pipe burst too) but the others survived. No, my plants aren't 40 years old, I've rooted cuttings several times and thus have descendants of the Swedish ivy and the spider plant.
