Planting time is never very inexpensive for us. Our growing season is so short that we buy mostly bedding plants rather then buying seed. I suppose if we had a place to actually start plants in greater number things would be different.
I did however use every single plant I bought, unusual for me as I usually over buy. We did cut down on container plantings this year (well I did and kind of regret it right now) but when watering with the rain barrel and watering can could and did take an hour, perhaps things were getting a bit out of hand. Mind you next year could see another movement back to the number of baskets and pots I do plant (people already say they are missing the riot of colour out front).
Now that everything is set up properly I will be posting some pictures of how things look and one of the benches Harvey made me to set my pots of herbs on.
Everybody have a wonderful evening.
