Never before have I found myself at Target at 9:39am. Now *that’s* a first. But this is for all you indoor bulb-forcers or come on first-timers (!): pick up this pre-packaged Smith & Hawken bulb forcing kit for less than 5 bones. Did you hear that? Amaryllis usually cost at least $12 bucks sometimes more and I got these babies for $2.50 each. Sure, it’s prepackaged, not to mention prepackaged by THE big box garden monster but when the going gets rough mama wants what she wants and that is a cost savin’ deal. Call it a double standard. Or a balanced approach to purchasing.
Don’t like the red container? You know the word: donate or find another creative use. I think I will use ours as a much needed new kitchen crock to hold tongs and such.
Now go and get! Pick up a little bit of garden for an ounce of your green.
