At the very end of the season, there are all sorts of ways to get plants for free or mostly free. Which is great- if they live.

At the end of December I grabbed a TON of plants off the pitch pile at work, because no one else was stupid enough to give it any effort. The plants were frozen solid, literally- plantsicles. I knew I was taking a risk that they'd never amount to anything but compost- but I'm long on energy and short on cash, so why not give it a try?

They have been acting like Sleeping Beauty in my garage since then, the thyme looks like a goner but it seems like everything else is still alive, or at least in a cryogenic, life-like state which I'm sure will fail in March and I'll be sad and need to buy 3x more plants to cheer me up again.
