So why am I growing my own flowers from seed? The seed packets I bought for 16 varieties of annuals and perennials cost me $50. I am growing at least 6 of most of them (we have a big yard) which would cost me almost $300 to buy the smallest plants later this spring. Plus, I will get to come home after work and check on them every day, I love that routine. When they germinate, I do a little happy dance.
We are socked in with a horrible inversion, so this is a nice diversion for me. Here's to spring!
