Lost in Lowe's
Lowe's and Home Depot and Ambleside and Central NJ Nursery, to be specific.
We spent yesterday afternoon going a little nuts in various garden centers. The original plan was to stop by for some chicken wire and a bag of topsoil. Unfortunately the original plan lasted until we climbed out of the truck and encountered a huge display of yellow and orange marigolds begging to be transplanted.
The marigolds were followed by some yellow daisies (I love daisies), Japanese eggplant, globe eggplant, Texas thyme, tarragon, mint, cucumbers, zucchini, and yellow squash. Our restrained, toe-in-the-water gardening plan for 2009 clearly went up in smoke.
"We went crazy," he said as we drove away in our plant/chicken wire/topsoil-laden truck.
Looks like our $45 tomato is going to have company.
