Memorial Weekend

The long weekend started with a trip to our local farmers market here in Asheboro. Then we came home because we brought flowers and did not want to leave the flowers in the car on our trip to Greensboro and the farmers market on sandy ridge road. I love going to the farmers market on sandy ridge road the flowers and fresh vegetables are great. Today we ate at Moose Cafe it is country food but it was good and loved the service. Spent some time later today working in the yard. We brought a beautiful Patio tomato at the farmers market in Greensboro and I plan to plant it tomorrow it was only $3.00 and a good size. I have a trip planned to Lowes Hardware to buy potting soil. Maybe tomorrow I will post a picture of the tomato. So far no reading knitting or crochet.

Summer Garden

We made a big start to our summer garden and summer flowers. Most of our flowers are perennials and will come back every year. I love them the best because if you can get the plant to live you don't have to worry about the plant again. We always plant a few hanging baskets with petunia's and begonia's. In the vegetable garden we planted 6 Whopper tomato's, 8 Roma tomato's, 1 banana pepper, 1 chili pepper, 6 Swiss Chard , 1 Red Sorrel. We cleaned up the garden space that we won't use this year. I planted 4 yellow pair tomato's in hanging baskets, and another Sweet 100 cherry tomato. I have two Sweet 100's left to plant and I will have to wait until payday to buy more potting soil. The pot I plan to use takes about one and a half bags of soil. I finished another apple dishcloth and added a few rows on the slanted diamond. Still reading The Knitting Diaries great read for me. Summer is in full swing here in North Carolina.
