plant sale and tacos!

Today we went to the Halawa Xeriscape Garden plant sale! It was me and my sisters first time going to this plant sale. It was quite a walk, since they didn’t have much parking!! They passed out a brochure, information, a ticket for mulch, a ticket for lucky prizes, and free herb seeds as we waited in line! I thought that was a nice touch!! It made time fly faster and made it more exciting!

All the vendors were mostly selling succulents! that was fun since me and my sister are trying to grow succulents! Most of the succulents were priced about 2 or 3 times then the prices at home depot or other garden shops, there were in genetic pots. It was a bit saddening to see these plants $6-10 for baby succulents. I thought only places that had the succulents in creative things could sell for that much or even more… but in a generic pot, I don’t think they should price it that high.

We ended up going to a vendor that was selling baby, baby succulents for a dollar each! :) It was the last vendor we went to! I got 4 succulents and my sister got 3! :D When we went home we repotted them and repotted our other succulents! Everyone is happy – new soil, more room!

We also repotted our lemon tree and blue berry plant! They were both really dying for more room!
