Dollarama strikes again

I was on my way home the other day when I remembered that if I really wanted to get my seeds started in time to have decent size plants for the garden this summer, I really needed to get on it. I needed seed trays and soil, but there was a Wal-Mart right on my way home.

But wouldn't you know it, I was too busy daydreaming and drove right past it. By the time I realized, I was probably only a kilometre or so down the road, but those who know me well, know I hate to back track. When I'm pointed in a particular direction, it takes a lot to get me to turn the car around. A trip to Wal-Mart just wasn't going to cut it.

But the dollar store was still in my path. The last time I was there, their garden aisle was pretty well-stocked, so I figured it was worth a look.

Let's just say, I'm glad I missed Wal-Mart.
They had everything I needed (even the soil) at about half the price of Walmart.  I still need on more tray to plant my Fox Glove seeds, but everything else is planted and tucked up nicely on Grandma's table. Dave's not overly thrilled about that, but it's the only place they will get enough sun and are relatively safe from curious cat noses.

And while it's all bare soil, I expect to see green sprouts in just a few days... and come summer, maybe a little more of this

Good for you! I feel the need for some planting too. I can't wait until it's warm enough to put some annuals in the ground.

You know, I've been coming by to visit for a while now, and I'm impressed by the number of times and methods you find and utilize a really good deal for quality, useful merch. It's really great. Ah, the growing things for Sir Rocky Chief Yardwork Supervisor's office. hehe. I loved that, can you tell?
