This year is no exception, so as soon as we had one non-rainy weekend afternoon, I ran to Fred Meyer and bought a ton of plants.
Three weeks later on our second non-rainy weekend afternoon, I could finally pot them.
Fuchsia starts for the hanging baskets.
New pots, new plants
Old pots, new plants
Did you know that you can buy a huge hanging basket of fuchsias at Costco for $14.99? I didn't until after I spent almost that amount on starts plus the time and materials to pot them in baskets half the size of the Costco ones. Live and learn.
Will these plants last the summer? Or will I quit watering them halfway through June? We'll have to wait and see....
