Starting my garden for spring

Monday, March 29, 2010

While I was out couponing yesterday I stopped at Kmart to check out their herb plants. I didn't have any luck at Walmart last week, but I did quite well here. The plants looked a lot healthier and a couple were already bearing fruit! I got a couple of basil plants, some German thyme, strawberries, cherry tomatoes, and jalapenos and oregano. They were priced at $3.27 each, which is also 70 cents cheaper then they were at Walmart.

While I was there, I also picked up a mini green house for under 3 dollars. The Burpee seeds were also half price, so I got a pack of cilantro and a pack of Bibb lettuce for under a dollar each.

The green house came with individual soil pods. I added some warm water to rehydrate the pods and sowed the seeds.

As I was leaving I spotted this Salsa Garden, which I couldn't pass up. It came with a galvanized pot, soil, and seeds to grow cilantro, tomatoes, and jalapenos. To be honest, I definitely could have assembled this for a lot less than the price I paid ($9.99), but it gave me a good idea for a cute housewarming gift!

Everything is now resting comfortably on my sunny windowsill. Hopefully everything grows so I can enjoy them through out the summer (and save money by not having to buy them!).
