Bargains at the Dollar Store"



I decided to stop at the dollar store since they had seeds 4/$1. last year, and I was too late for many.. The cheapest I've ever seen them was $.99  so I figured why not give it a try. I picked up a few (boy! if I had more than "Almost an Acre") There would be no end to my canning :o)  Here it is March and I have still been canning since last month..(potatoes, chicken_).. I told myself I had to strike while the iron was hot.;o) Canning Jar prices are going through the roof and they are getting scarce come canning time, especially wide mouth, they are so much easier to fill.
I don't know if these seeds will just go into my "Side Garden" some seeds call for more Sun than it gets around there...I think I need (have to) get another box , yes another box, next to the ones that aren't on low ground...walking the hill is a pain in the butt, besides Cecil is getting very picky about me taking some of his garden space :o(  I can't get him to even think about a larger farm :o(  I'm itching to get started but it's still too cold here, and I don't have enough Sunlight in the house to help seeds along...Now I don't think downsizing was a good idea..this house is too big to clean and not big enough for my plants :o)...
In these bunch of seeds I have some Spinach Mustards< I never heard of them before so I thought I'd give them a try...anyone ever raised them?

Those seeds always germinate great for me, even better than some of the expensive ones. Our dollar store had them at six for a dollar last year. They don't have a lot of seeds in them, but that's a good thin, 'cause there aren't a lot left over to sit around and get old. LOL, Ginny, you and I will never just sit around....we might get old!

Ginny, you and Grenville are both in the seed buying and starting mood. He bought some this week and is planning to start them in the greenhouse. It was warm here last week and now temps have dropped again so outdoor planting is on hold for awhile for us too.

Annie's Granny, God forbid that we grow old! Then we wouldn't do a thing but complain about what we can't do, I think you and I could match ourselves against a lot of today's "youngins" :o)

Ginny, you're going to be doing a lot of gardening and canning from the looks of the seeds you bought. You're always busy! :)
