I am so excited. I just had a revelation after watching to many House hunter episodes that our garden is larger than many peoples entire back yards.
Brad has been working so hard on our garden. Please note I have a black thumb of death, so I am watching from the sidelines. Maybe I can learn something. I wrote about going to Lowe’s and buying BOGO plants. I must confess that wasn’t a deal. What was a deal was going to our local greenhouse and buying plants. Brad spent maybe $50 and came home with lots and lots of plants. He got 6 tomato plants for $2.50. I got 2 for $3.49 at Lowe’s. He bought 42 tomatoes plants, a very large flat of lettuce, 6 broccoli plants, 6 pepper plants and I don’t remember what else. Every time I looked around I saw new plants going in the ground.
Oh well that is how it goes sometimes. I do think Lowe’s had more variety of tomatoes. We will be picking strawberries in just a week or two, maybe even next weekend! Anyone want to join our family outing??? Then we will come home and wash and slice. We will make some jam, not a lot b/c we still have almost 24 pints total left from last year and about half are strawberry or strawberry pineapple (my personal favorite…for now). I am hoping to pick and freeze maybe 75- 100 lbs. I am not sure I have enough freezer space. It might be time to stop shopping and eat out of our stash. I will make sure I take pictures of our strawberries and finished jam.
