Hardware stores and garden centres are dangerous places for me. I rarely get out of them without having spent a small fortune. Plants are the most leathal sections for me.
Today I had to go down to get some dowel so I could put together a mobile for baby J's room, plus some other bits and pieces for that project. And I wound up with some veggie seedlings in the mix. But at about a $20 spend, it's one of the cheapest trips I've ever had.
Not bad since I've been known to drop $200 on a single plant in the past (thankfully it's still alive!!).
