So I finally planted my Asian Jasmine (with my borrowed shovel) that I purchased before the challenge. I had three empty containers, 2 in my backyard and 1 in the front, but the Asian Jasmine isn’t really made for container gardens. It’s a ground cover that you can’t kill, because if you could, I would have already done it. Now I can’t purchase plants, unless they grow food of some sort. Instead of buying anything, I dug up some random Purple Heart plants and relocated them into the pots.
Now my yard doesn’t look like 1313 Mockingbird Lane anymore. And, it cost me nothing. Next year I hope to start a garden, maybe some small container gardens and grow some of my own food. I now have spices growing in a pot in the backyard, not much, but it’s a start. If you buy spices at Sprouts, they’re still in the dirt. Slap it in a pot with more dirt and watch it grow. I like spending $3.50 on food that keeps producing more food.
