Went to the school greenhouse this morning. Picked up thyme, oregeno, and parsley. Got some tomatos I have forgotten the name of (I know which two they WEREN'T, which leaves Jet Star and the one I can't remember as the possibilities), and two mystery tomatos that volunteer grew in the recycled dirt the geraniums I chose were planted in. Grabbed some pretty hostas, marigolds, and coxcombs, too.
You may remember that I told you Mr. Fancher tends to give good deals. That's 2 of thyme, 2 of oregeno, 2 of parsley, 4 of tomato, 2 of geranium, six of hosta, six of coxcomb, and six of marigolds - for $12. Mom bought about $22 worth of stuff and paid $14.
I did not get any peppers. I am still in hopes that mine will grow. I did get the maters, though, because mine resemble microgreens a lot more than they resemble tomatos. Gonna wait a bit to plant them, however, because we are do for "damaging winds, large hail, and tornados" starting this evening.
Sadly, it doesn't appear that much of my garden will feature in https://www.livebelowtheline.com/me/jmf this year. The challenge begins on Monday, and I've nothing up enough to count as anything but a microgreen. Last year I had quite a bit up - but last year I didn't have the snow setbacks, either. Anyhow, donations are much appreciated despite the lack of garden goodies!
It doesn't look like the pot geraniums went to seed, so I'll plant the geranium/tomato combos in those pots, and the marigolds will go in the marigold pot and a few random spots in the garden. Wait, no. I'll do the g/t combo in the pots out by the garden waiting for tomatos - the flowers will just pretty it up all the more - and... the marigolds can go in the hanging baskets in the trees (no, the basil is making no appearance. Might just need a flower friend), and the coxcomb in the planters (coughburiedtoiletswhatwasthemanthinkingcough) beside the front porch.
Knowing me, I'll go back in a couple weeks anyhow to pick up more flowers, and the peppers if mine don't grow, and probably a few more stray maters. Those flowers can go in random spots in the garden (like between the cages).
In the meantime, I have a library to order now that the bookcases are more or less in place, and several pallet projects to bring home pallets for. One at a time, most likely, walked down the street. It is times like this I miss having a little truck.
