A big part of our weekend was spent planting all of these lovely beauties. I went a little crazy at Home Depot – I have a hard time leaving plants at the store. I think I got some good things – some peonies (love! – the one that I planted a few years ago is going to bloom this week), russian sage (these do awesome in the really dry and hot parts of our yard), and some liatris (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liatris_spicata – I have never planted these before so hopefully they live).
I also got get some tomatoes. This will be my first time attempting to grow something edible, other than herbs. The variety I picked out are smaller cherry tomatoes that should have fruit in about 50 days. So we’ll see if I can manage not to kill them before the summer is over.
