Plants and Coffee

May 25th, 2022 at 03:11 am

I had coffee with one of my instructors to tell him I was leaving.  I'm a huge fan of who he is as a teacher and as a human.  He does a lot of film work as a sideline, and has the coolest ideas.  He's so interested in everything that our planned 45 minutes of coffee turned into 2 hours. 

Since I was already out and about I thought it was about time to buy some tomato plants and annuals for the patio.  Yikes, inflation has hit there too.  I ended up with smaller tomatoes for cheaper which I may live to regret and tried to be very strategic with purchased annuals, supplementing them with some things started from seed.  But man, sort of moderate to meh geraniums were $8-10.  All the cheaper ones left at our local nursery were salmon, and I wanted hot pink and white.  But another woman and I teamed together to sort through 50 flats, searching for red for her, and my white and pink.  I love to find someone else on a mission like me.  And we succeeded.

DD and her BF are safely in Scotland, recovering fron jet lag with a walk in Holyrood Park and a trip to her favorite ramen place. Her parents ate leftover pasta for dinner and enjoyed watching the baby bunnies who are unfortunately nested in our front planter box.  But they're adorable and likely have their eyes on my new plants.

    Glad to hear your DD made it safely.

    I agree about the plants. I wanted to buy a few things but in my area they were way too expensive

    That was great you could spend some time with the instructor and enjoy it so!

    Yes, plants like everything have risen in price. That was nice of you to help that other person find the right color!

    Glad DD made it safely.

    I bought a half gallon Veronica plant today that was $11.99. But it is perennial here unless the winter gets to 10 degrees which only happens about once every ten years. The red yarrow was much cheaper. The cost of tomatoes and peppers was pretty high. Next year I will get my act together and actually use my seed starting station. I think it's neat that you found a like-minded person to help you sort plants.
