A few weeks back, I saw a post on Facebook from a fellow garden blogger who found an amazing deal at Walmart. Garden Hoard found a bin full of spring flowering bulbs that were extremely discounted for literally pennies, with a huge sign on the bin "to be thrown out". I guess big market stores discard plants when they are deemed past their prime and not sellable. As gardeners, we see a dying plant, old seed, or bulb and think, "hey, we can grow that!!" I have discovered that garden bloggers are just about the most generous people out there, and Garden Hoard posted on her Facebook wall that she was willing to buy up the rest of the stock of bulbs for any gardeners who was willing to pay for shipping. I jumped at the chance and asked her to pick up as many packages of bulbs, and I'd send her money for the shipping cost. Low and behold a box was delivered with these babies! 14 packages of spring bulbs for $13! Woohoo!!

Ever since I found out that you can regrow scallions, I've been obsessed with regrowing them. It's so much fun! And so easy!!
