A success!

The plant sale is over!

Here's some pics from the sale. I started out with 340 plants.












Craig took this pic of cars parking across the street. There's no parking allowed on the street. See our mo-ho there too?

As Craig went to take pics of the crowd, the camera wouldn't turn on. Battery was dead. So by time he got it recharged, the sale was over. 300 plants in 40 minutes! Grand total.........$1002.00! Better than last year with fewer plants! But I did have larger divisions, so priced them a little more. But still nothing over $5.

And I'm completely exhausted form all the preparation, but it was well worth it. People gushed over the yard, and loved the selection and organization.


And here's all that's left. 33 plants. I was surprised at some of them. I'm going to plant some back in the yard, and put the rest out by the mailbox with a free sign.
I'm glad it's over. It really consumed most of my extra time.
But now the yard looks good for the summer, we have some extra gas money for the mo-ho, and we can play the rest of the season.
And I'll have more pics of the yard tomorrow.
