This is going to be short as we have severe weather coming in and I want to hurry and get this done before we possibly lose power.
Today was beautiful and I'm longing for spring (which is here I guess but we keep having freezes) so I decided while out running errands to get some garden supplies. Now earlier this month I met Beth Terry and she had invited me to be apart of a talk she was giving on plastic, so you would think I would plant flowers from seeds and such to avoid plastic but you would be wrong.
I ended up getting top soil in plastic, garden soil in plastic, recycled mulch (for flowers NOT food!) in plastic and it is plastic, annuals in plastic, and lavender in a biodegradable pot but with a plastic label. And none of it is recyclable in my area!
I also bought perennials from the local co-op, not sure how those will come but at least those last. I'm trying to switch my yard to all perennials so I don't have to buy so much plastic. With the very hot summers Oklahoma has been having and our three year long drought, I have been looking for very heat and drought resistant plants. Last year went pretty well so hopefully this year will go well and next year I will be able to keep myself from buying any annuals.
Do you have any green confessions to make? No one is perfect, it's good to remember that. Tomorrow will be a better day, I don't plan to leave the house, ha.
