I love to find a bargain and both Aldi and Lidl often help me unquestionably hand over largish sums of money because of some too good to miss offer. Today was no exception.
I picked up a 6 pack of Apache chillies and a 6 pack of bell peppers for £1.99 each. Both plants are something which I struggle to get going in the flat so any headstart is worth its while in my books. I also picked up a box of compost accelerator for £2.99 and 10metres of galvanised mesh which I will use for my pea frame. I spotted a 4 tier greenhouse for £14.99 and some seed trays with pots for £2.99 but I will have to return tomorrow to get them as I ran out of room in the car.
I saw in Lidl that they have a pressure sprayer on offer on Thursday which I have my eye on. I have some weeds poking up through the woodchip and I plan on exterminating them with vinegar. I’ve never tried vinegar before but I’ve read it’s just as good at killing things as the branded weed killer and being natural and about a third of the price I’ve got nothing to lose by trying it out!
