Or you work cheap.

So the lupins are perennials? They don't necessarily germinate from seed? So you have to be careful and not burn too late and damage them. This is quite a precision operation. You really know your plants!
Only 4 so far, but yeah, the first one was the hardest to get because I had to compete with all the other noobs.  I think it was the 8th one I applied for.  (Didn't help that half of them were in Hawaii and the way the site was set up then, the applications for Hawaii sits would hit 50 within the first 24 hours.   Oh My   ) Once you get a review or three, you're ahead a bit and have a better chance of being picked.
You get a place to stay for free in exchange for minding someone's home & pets.  It's a great way to travel.  Don't have to eat out all the time, have a more home-y place to stay.

They do grow well from seed.  I just collect and spread them to enlarge the patch, and to get more of the seeds onto the ground and not in any remaining notquiteburned grass.  Burning too late and yes, you would damage the previous year's fallen seeds (actually might any time, which is why I collect them now) as well as singeing the tops of the established plants that are starting to grow.

"Well... *cough*  We were kinda sorta friends maybe, BUT, Scarlett got ATTACKED!!  We were minding our own business on the nightstand and the other cat grabbed her, and had dragged her out into the hall before mum rescued her.  Scarlett didn't get hurt but we had to hide in our travel case after that.
"Love (and shudders), Sunsette"

It's been raining for a week.  Got a couple quick pix of Celeste between downpours yesterday.
