It’s not news that I love Tractor Supply Company. We just happened to hit the last day of their weekend sale, which gave us an extra 20% off everything that wasn’t a plant, or seeds. Okay, half the items I bought were seeds, “White Carolina Pineberry” strawberries (that came with 10 pollinator red strawberries), or asparagus crowns, but the remainder of what I bought ended up being somewhere around 70% off. And, the thing is that even for fruit whips/root masses, and seeds, their full retail price is about half of what a local garden center (or even a box store) would charge. The entire bill, with pro-rated discounts, plus full price items, came to about half off what I would have paid anywhere else. This time, we didn’t need tractor parts, fencing, or animal feed, but they sell those, too, for a fair price.
My other favorite place is a local feed mill. The family that runs that place is fantastic. Their prices are fair.
What sucks is that it’s still too cold to plant pea seeds. *sigh*
