Part of our busy weekend was spent at the garden center picking up pots and plants and soil. Then I spent a few hours repotting some houseplants and putting some plants in containers for outside. This year we are not putting in a garden – I want to figure out what is growing in the yard and see what I like and don’t like before putting in our plot- so I picked up a container tomato plant and some herbs. Since Shawn is anti-veggie, I figure I can just pick up whatever is in season at the farmer’s market this year for myself to eat. Plus, a dear friend has promised me some vegetables from her garden in return for a little manual labor weeding the beds. I’m already scheming what things I’ll can and preserve later in the season.
