Another good plant day.


So I went to the farmer's market this morning and it was crazy busy. This made me happy even though I was having trouble finding parking. The vegetables looked fantastic. I picked up some broccoli, swiss chard, spinach, green onions, carrots, lettuce.

At some point, I lost my mind and picked up brussel sprouts. I hated these things as a kid but then I again my mom served the frozen, out of the bag kind. I've been told by several people that cooking fresh ones yourself are delicious

I told my sister about them, she was stunned.

I also picked up a sweet basil and a chive plant.

Later on in the day, I went back to the nursery and rounded out the plant gardem with thyme, golden sage, celery, spicy wild greens and fernleaf lavender. I love fernleaf lavender because you get terrific lavender sent through the leaves. I also replaced my lone casualty, a rosemary plant.

I called my friend Rosemary and yelled at her for the sins of "her people."

The nursery was also super busy. They have an extensive garden of their own that they allow you to take pictures of so I think I will take my camera next time.

I still have some potting soil left, I think I'm gonna have to pick up a few more plants.
