Tim, trust me you ain't in last place buddy. I can almost count my containers on my fingers -
3 agapanthus buried up to their necks
1 old canning kettle with tansy
1 chair with portulaca
4 "tubs" with annuals on the deck and porch
1 trough under a window out front
2 tin buckets with annuals
3 pots of New Guinea impatiens hiding the crawlspace entrance
2 deck planter boxes
That's 17 if my math is correct. So I'd only need two hands and one and half feet to count them. Or two feet and one and a half hands, or... :)
Oh, I forgot the single/solitary/lonely/lone inside planter with a Christmas cactus (I usually forget to water it, too poor baby.) So I'm up to 18. Boy if I think really hard, I could maybe get to 20...
Oooooooohhhhhh, I have taken 7 truck loads over to MIL's and was planning on counting when I brought them back. Thought it would be tooooooo discouraging to know while I was still moving them: I'd just be stressing at how many I still had to move!
Best guesstimate is about 300, all in pots. So I'm hanging in the middle there.
Lord, why? Is the question I most ask myself. Isn't 100 enough, 200? When will it end? I seem to come home with seeds or starts everytime I leave the house. I have no shame, I will stop the car, and approch total strangers just to talk about their interesting plants growing in their yard...
Did you all actually figger this out? IF I do count the indoor containers PLUS the outdoor containers, I'd bet I've got 400 or more! YIKES>>>>> I'll have to do a real count. My kids counted just indoor plants a few years ago - since then I've gotten rid of some but have obtained more...there was 348 then.
