    Ok I got these 3 pots at Sharums in Fort Smith a few years ago, I just love the way they fit my table. Well this fall or winter not sure what happened but all the sedums that were in these pots died. It was probably the dry winter we had bot sure since they normally winter over, Well I started in Fort Smith looking for the sedums I would need. Went too the 2 major greenhouses that I know of in Fort Smith plus Lowes, Home Depot and Southern Lumber. Went on too garden Centers in Fayetteville on to Muskogee on too 6 places in Tulsa and Sandsprings. Got a little bit here and there. I got most of the unusual ones from EBay at good prices. I got some real Nice Chocolate Ball Sedum at Blossoms in Muskogee. I forgot too mention walmarts in most of the nearby towns too. I even got some from Joyces's inbetween Sallisaw and Muldrow. It took a while too put them together but I think it was worth the effort. 'we wont talk about cost here,lol gardening and budgets dont belong together.😏😏😏

    I m not sure I understand what you are saying. This year most plants have been averaging around 5 bucks a piece some of those pots have 8 different plants or more. On these pots I did divide some of the sedums into smaller clumps but in most of my pots I dont divide the plants. These pots should winter over this year. I will keep a good watch on them in the fall too.

    Now if you are asking how much the pot sell for. When I first bought them about 3 or more years ago they were a good 40 bucks a piece, I would not sell mine for that. Too much work finding the right plants this year

    thanks I have almost got all the plants I bought for pots planted. just a few left too tweak. Still have a bunch of taro too do something with. I will fill in pots if something would start growing so I can see what is what. I am wanting some bantam Chickens really bad and trying too talk myself out of it. I dont want a lot maybe a dozen or so. I used too love raising them.

    I was roto tilling my garden with dads Troy Bilt and a man came over too see about fixing my xterra. He said I can make tht roto tiller pur if you will let me work on it. A good ole boy and cleaned the carberator as it had been setting idle since dad died. It was spitting and backfiring like crazy. Well Troy Bilts were built too last. This one is 33 years old I found the receipt for it where dad paid $1265.65 for it in jan of 1984 that was a lot of money back then and its still a lot of money. It need new seals on the transmisson and gear case too. I am going too have it all fixed. The tires are rotten too.

    I am waiting on my plants too grow, we had a real early spring but it was cold and wet and stormy. just when things start too grow along comes the storms and take the tops out of the bananas and some of the taro. do while I have been waiting I have been getting the stuff ready for my chicken pen. we got started today the people helping on worked an hour and then it was so hot it was making me sick but we got the post holes dug or they did. after they left I took a small nap and then got out and started leveling and putting the bottom board down. I know the biddies will be so happy too get out of those totes some are fling out daily.

    Ok I have been working on this chicken pen for a week now finally got it done. I had some help as I could not dig the holes myself or even handle the fence post auger. he pen joins the 2 houses together too form one large pen. I do have it separated right now too keep the older babies separate from the younger ones. I finally even got my black leaved crape myrtles planted too. I bought them last year.lol I enjoy setting in the shade under the pecan tree watching them. The dogs just walk circles around the pen. Its getting really hot here too. I was trying too water this morning and it got way too hot.
