I Should Have Started More Seeds

Can you believe this cost $56? I went to the garden centre to buy bedding plants this week and was amazed at the cost. I was trying to be thrifty too. Next year I am going to try to start more flowers from seed. I usually start vegetables and perennials but next year....

Speaking of vegetables, my garden is coming up nicely. You can see onions, lettuce, peas and those are tomatoes (that I started from seed) behind those bags. I have also planted beans this week. Last night Clare (my husband) also planted some things. But I noticed this morning that he failed to label anything so it will be a surprise. Hmmmmm...

The bachelor's button have bloomed this week. I planted them years ago int the garden and they have self seeded all over. After they bloom I just pull out the ones I don't want.

The Camassia is showing off well.


  1. I direct sowed a lot of flowers this year. I'll have to wait for them a bit but it does cut the cost. I let bachelor buttons self seed to. So easy! Looks like your vegetables are off to a good start.

  2. thats a cool name for what we call knapweed - Bachelors Buttons. Mine are still in tight bud.

    I know how you feel about being frugal - I'm thinking exactly the same thing about seeds next year aswell.
