You would think that I could go a weekend without heading to Home Depot and buying more plants, but alas no. I have spring fever because of our awesome weather, and this translates to spring planting for me.
On Friday I picked up a huge tomato plant at Costco. I named him Thomas. Saturday when I went to plant him I realized I didn’t have enough potting soil, so I headed to Home Depot. While I was there, I noticed that all their vegetables and herbs were 50% off! How could I resist!?!?!? So I got some basil (I really enjoyed having that last year) as well as some rosemary. I also got a few strawberry plants. I have no idea how these are going to do – but I heard they grow great in containers!
I would love to have a nice sized garden, but we have a horrible rabbit problem and I am afraid they would eat everything. So I have been planting in containers on my deck. This has worked out great in the past – and hopefully it will this year too!
