Tackle it Tuesday

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

Once again I am following my BFF Peggy in a weekly feature. Today is "Tackle it Tuesday" and the concept is to tackle a project (of any kind) taking before and after pictures and posting it on your blog. Since I have a LOT of projects to tackle it only makes sense to make it blogable.

Today I decided it was past time to repot my plants. Here was the before picture:
Right after I started digging in to the first plant, I realized I did not have a big enough planter for it. The roots were filling the pot it was in and it needed a lot more room and not the little more room I was planning to give it. So, I got into my car and drove to Dollar General which is very close to our house. They had already clearanced their lawn and garden stuff so I went a little further down the road to Family Dollar where I got a couple of large planters and some more potting soil.
I tried to separate one of the plants.
I hope they make it.
Can you believe ALL of these plants except for the one on the far right came in that littlest yellow and blue pot? It was a Thank You gift from Peggy after the twins were born. I usually don't have luck with plants, but these ones must be hardy! They have survived over a year and grown considerably!
Thanks for Visiting!

So all the other participants can see your tackle too. I can't believe you still have all those plants from that one little plant! And they moved to a new state with you:)
