So like most gardeners, the weekends always end up being our time to shine. By shine, of course I mean drink a lot and lay around in the garden soil until our wits come back in a blur… but you gardeners know what we are talking about – surely.
Seriously though, we love the weekends… and the way we kick off the weekend most of the time is with a local nursery tour and a huge haul of plants that we then have to figure out where to put. We love it though, as most gardeners do – and it seems as if we see the same bunch of people each Saturday at the same nurseries buying plants.
It is a vicious cycle.
This saturday we were on the hunt for some hanging baskets and anything else that caught our eye. We went to one of the further nurseries in the area – Garden View… and we actually left w/ absolutely nothing. They had great plants… they were just HUGE – and we didn’t need huge Saturday morning.
So then we stopped by our favorite local nursery/greenhouse and that is La Casa Verde – which came through. We picked up a hanging basket to replace the ones from last year – and of course… a whole bunch of other stuff we probably didn’t need. See below to get a window into our haul.
Obviously we have a thing for eggplant this year – since we bought like 10 of them. 3 different varieties, along w/ some sweet potato vines. You can see a fern over everything, a few flowers I cannot think of right now and some marigolds for the tomatoes to hang out with. There is also a couple peppers that looked too cool to pass up. We have issues.
Remember all we were doing was going to get a hanging basket – so proof we didn’t lie…
I know everyone is going to say… well what is it? And this is where I say… damn – I forgot and I don’t have the tag w/ me at the moment. So I will have to update this post later. Sorry. I suck at blogging sometimes. And this is one of those times.
Did you do a local nursery crawl this weekend? What goodies did you end up with? Please tell us we are not the only ones that do this EVERY… SINGLE… WEEKEND?
