Two Saturdays ago I bought some strawberries, watermelon and cantalope plants.
I planted the watermelon and cantalopes in the driveway. I was afraid they would get ran over because the fence is brown (you can't even see it in the picture, can you?). So, I placed old, dead CDs on strings to act as reflectors. They work very well and have an eerie glow at night.
Um... I should have a picture of the strawberries in the strawberry pots placed right here. I don't know why I didn't take a picture of them!?!
Mom and I stopped and had a nice pot of tea (not local- Harrod's Earl Grey #42, YUM!) and blueberry scones from the Artisan Bread Company purchased at the Cowtown Farmer's Market. This was on an unrealistically cold last Sunday in April (27th).I bought this terribly expensive organic potting soil from the feed store. It's from Austin. I had no clue that Miracle Grow now made an organic potting soil (but now I have two bags of 2 cubic feet each which cost the same as this lovely 1 cubic foot Lady Bug stuff). The potatoes are now not going to be nearly as expensive to grow as they once were.
