My lettuce is doing well, radishes are sprouting, garlic is doing well, my basils need a little love but should be fine, Chives and rosemary are ready to eat, tomatoes, sweet peppers and chili peppers are all growing, snap peas and strawberries are blooming, kale and mint are being eaten and the scallions have yet to peak out of the soil. And all this is on my balcony. :)

I am curious to know the total price for those 64 plants. I used to buy mine but have grown from seed the last few years, with about the same number of tomatoes and peppers.

a flat *36 or 48 plants depending upon what it is* will run you about $14 + tax (6%) here... If you go to a big box store and buy individual seedlings you may give in excess of $2 or $3 a piece.

For market seedlings I decided to see how well those 20 cent Walmart seed packets germinate. Cost is less than 5 cents / plant for plastic 4 pack + starter + seed... Mother Nature is doing the rest inside the green house except for water... Don't even want to now what my overhead would be if I figured it out...

We'll see how well the tobacco seedlings go over at market next month...........

Game On!!! This is the first year that my lettuce, spinach and chard didn't bolt after they got 2in. We are harvesting lettuce, spinach and chard. Tomatoes are setting blooms. Basil and herbs are fine.And the most exciting thing :D I just got two small rugosa rose bushes from a trade online!! I cant wait to harvest rosehips. We also have strawberries already and lots of blooms on our blueberry bushes. This may be the first year we get peaches on our tree and everything else, onions, garlic, grapes is healthy 8)

veggies at the store are way too expensive, they don't even sell 6 packs anymore, and it is rare to find a 4 pack. most of what is sold here is one packs at $3 plus each. I did purchase 2, 4 packs of jalapenos and 4, 4 packs of green peppers and that is only because it takes so long for green peppers to get established here, last year my peppers that I started from seed started getting peppers in the fall, then we got an early frost and they all died. Everything else I have going is from seed. I don't even know how much of what I have growing, I've been too scared to count it all, In all I think it's over 200 plants and that's not counting my flowers that I just started to climb the fences.
