|Ella, I checked the ground around the plants that "didn't make it" before giving up on them. Since it is so early, lots of plants looked dead or dormant above ground, but were sending out shoots and/or new roots. I am pleasantly surprised how many plants survived this terrible winter, some of them in pots. I planted the hard to replace items first - like roses, clematis, peonies - and didn't get around to many of the perennials. I had seeds from each and divided starts of each in friend's gardens. Not to worry, I already have an embarrassingly large number of pots. Some things didn't' make it and I didn't buy any new plants (well, no big ones. The two adorable mini roses in full bloom don't count - they were b1g1 AND on special). I am still out of big pots.
I am exhausted, out of boxes, out of packing tape, almost out of garbage bags and almost out of time. I asked a few people if they could help me get some supplies and boxes...haven't given up on them yet but am a bit discouraged. I hope that I love the new neighborhood and place, I don't want to do this again.
When you are done building your greenhouse, Joseph, you can start the road trip to build them for the rest of us ...I bet all the other piggies have serious greenhouse envy. I certainly do.
