More Good Garbage today.
Folks in our neighborhood will post "curb alerts" on the listserv whenever they're getting rid of something. A lot of times it's not useful to us, but sometimes we're intrigued and will walk (or drive depending on the size of the item) on over with Bear in tow to check it out.
One of our latest finds was a pile of succulents. They looked measly laying there on the side of the road, but we liked the texture and color of a few of them, so we were glad to give them a home.
Blake planted them in one of our recent garage sale finds. We got a plethora of pots for 25 cents each from a home in our neighborhood that we've always wanted to explore. The house is on a triple lot and has its own greenhouse, so we were simply unable to stay away when the Estate Sale signs went up. It did not disappoint. We found some other great things there, but I'll save those for another day.
25 cents for a new plant for the kitchen. Now I won't feel as bad when I end up killing it. Succulents are fickle in our household - I will neither accept nor reject the blame for this.
