There’s Green In The Greenhouse
You use to be able to fill a box or two with pony packs of vegetables, not the case any longer.
We bought this small box of peppers, herbs and tomatoes from a vendor at Depot Days. It was twenty five dollars. Some of the vendors were getting three fifty for a single plant. There must be green in the green. At a Cheyenne nursery it was worse. They were getting between three fifty and five dollars for a single vegetable plant.
I ask the owner. They said it’s the watering, fertilizing and growing cost of the plants being passed along to the consumer. In Alaska, where we lived, the plants were expensive, I get that, they were shipped in. Next growing season, we’re going to grow seeds in starter sets and then plant. Much cheaper.
