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.
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
