I bought some new plants while at Wal-Mart today. I know, I know, Wally World plants are so unhappy and mistreated. BUT my timing was great, they had JUST recieved a plant shipment so all were happy healthy little guys.
I bought 9 Green Bell Peppers for $2.97, and 9 Mild Jalapenos for $2.97. A really pretty clematis for $4.88, 2 6-packs of vinca for $1 each, and a Sweet Basil.
Since I don't need all those different peppers, and I don't have the room for them, I'm going to give some to my neighbors.
The clematis was actually the only one of a whole bunch that wasn't brown, so I just had to save it. I'm going to plant it on the trellis on the shed.
The vincas I plan on putting in a hanging basket with pieces of the verbena that's growing in the garden. That plant is starting to get WAY too big and needs to be brought back into control. I plan on using a bird feeder cage for the "basket". It has lots of squares to stick the plants into, and I don't use it on the feeder anymore so I figured it might be fun to try as a planter..
