I thought it'd be nice to start a thread on and good buys on gardening supplies or tools we spot. I'll start, hopefully others will get use out of this.
To curb some of my excitement and hopefully force myself to avoid starting those tomato and pepper seeds a little longer I went to some random places to see what they had in the way of gardening supplies. I know a lot of people reuse other things and get free pots, HOWEVER, if you need some extras, I found that the "dollar tree" by me has 5" pots, these are 5 for $1. They also have 3" pots I think 6 or 8 for $1. They are brown/red plastic pots. Decent and definitely reusable. I got 30 of the 5".....just so y'all don't have to do the math that's 30 5" pots for $6. I don't think that's too bad of a deal!
They also had BIG indoor/outdoor thermometers for...you guessed it, $1 a piece. Not the most accurate thermometer in the world mind you, but it's good enough for what I am looking for.
I need to go back to the dollar store and walmart to look for popsicle sticks for plant markers for the seed trays. There's no way in he%% I'm paying $0.10 each for those flimsy little plastic white ones from the garden center. They should be more like 50 for $1!
Anyone else find any good deals? Sometimes I feel like I'm getting old when I start complaining about prices....lol. But I'm only 30!
