I did get the rest of the plants in the ground. Unfortunately, some of the green beans dried out over the weekend when I was out of town, and I’m not sure they’re going to make it. After all the work I did to give the plants a running start, I may end up poking more seeds in the ground and starting over. I suppose that’s a vote in the favor of seed starts. If things go wrong, it’s not another $3 to replace them. I still have the rest of the packet of seeds at home.
You might have noticed the tomato cages with the beans. The truth is that I bought climbing beans on purpose, but I have no intention of making a trellis. The tomato cage was 99 cents and it will work just fine.
Finally, I spent another $7 on the last of the potting soil and $3 on onions. Next year I may try sprouting my own onions, but they can be a little temperamental. This brings the total to $80.28. These veggies had better be worth it.
