What are you doing this Friday nite? We are watching a movie in the living room and eating In and Out while Dad is working. Can't think of anything more fitting...especially since I dragged them with me to try on maternity swimsuits, which was tortuous for both of us.
And before that we ventured to Tomatomania at Tapia Bros by my house. Which is the local farmers market. Each plant was $4 and there were easily 40 varieties. Now I'm going to have to go back and count them because I am really wondering how many. It was amazing. Heirlooms, beefsteaks, fany schmancy, purple ones, yellow ones, cherry, early harvest, best tasting, late bloom, plentiful harvest, cherry size, giant, you name it. My dad would have loved it. Hard place with kids and couldn't really look, and I've never grown anything edible, but once there were each holding a plant it was doable. Luke and Darby preferred the strawberry plants, Luke because he doesn't like tomatoes, and Darby because it had a flower and she has to be just like her brother. So now I just need a pot. and some soil, right?
Heres us with the loot. D is holding the real strawberries, cause you can't go there and not get there strawberries. The most beautiful red and huge and sweet! Amazing.
Flowers, one day I will plant you in my yard. When I get a yard that is mine....
What can I say, we are drawn to the tractors.
Tomatomania! Here is one row.
