root plants at ALDI - CHEAP

Post  PeggyC on 4/22/2012, 9:51 am

ALDI is a store I just discovered when I moved to Texas but I know they are kindof spread out. My aunt goes to one in New York. Anyway, if you have one, go scoop up their root plants. I got 6 asparagus crowns/bag for less than 50 cents/bag. Maybe 38 cents? I don't know. It was CHEAP. ....and spur-of-the-moment...but the solution to my "what to grow next to the fence at our new house" conundrum. There was also garlic, rhubarb, potatoes, etc...the whole "root" section, randomly dumped into a grocery cart in the middle of frozen goods.

OK, headed out to make the bed for them!

Wish I had thought to look at ALDI!

You can look HERE to see if there's one near you.

For anyone who has never been to an ALDI, bring a quarter with you for the shopping cart. You get it back, don't worry.

oh but head's up, feel the bags. some have nothing but dead, dried up former-plants in them. I had experienced that with Wal-mart root veggies last year, so knew to feel for HEAVY/Fat bags this year.

With Aldi keep your till tickets and take any dead stuff back .

Out of some 40 boxed plants we only had one half dead one . I took it back a week later and picked up a new one which was opened there & then at the till to check it was OK .

Don't you love the weird and wonderful stuff you get at Aldi?

That's where I bought my peanut plants a few months ago and here they just had a sale with plants as well, not root crops though. Broccoli, kale, Brussels sprouts, rainbow chard and stuff like that as well as flowers.
