I took the kids to pick strawberries again this morning. The berries are so ripe right now they are practically falling off the plants! I picked a big bucket full and made smoothies for the kids and some strawberry preserves and there are still a bunch leftover! Yummm. Life is good.
We went up to Kroger for some bananas and milk and they had some plants in a cart for $1. We bought a pot that has 3 day lilly plants in it and a big round pot with about 6 or 7 marigolds in it. Basically 9 plants for $2! They weren't pristine quality - one of the marigolds was dead...but the other 6 were fine and the same with the lilly...two of the flowers had died but the rest were nice and those are perennials so they'll come back again next year. Can't beat that bargain! Later we went to Wal-Mart for a few things - namely a watering can because someone stole mine out of the front yard! I swear, I cannot find it ANYWHERE and that is the only explanation. I guess it could have blown away in those windy storms last week - but I haven't seen it around. After Wal-Mart, I came home and cooked up the strawberry preserves and canned them now we are having snack time and getting ready to go outside to transplant some tomatoes. Chinese for dinner. I'm beat today!
