Garden Post 1
First I got sticky with apricots and made gallons of jam. Which I'm eating now as a late breakfast-early lunch.
There is really better than warm homemade jam on a toasted bagel. Bliss!
I think I have enough to last a year, don't you?
Than I thought, why not try to grow my own apricot tree. So I looked it up on google (don't ya just love the internet) and found out how. Hopefully in three to five years, I'll have a couple of trees.
I'm not sure I'd go back. They made me feel like a silly woman who asks too many questions.
The sad thing is, our little-ish town wants us to shop in town instead of going else where, yet local shops keep odd hours, don't post prices, aren't always friendly, really the list goes on.
Later, I'm going to go buy dirt. Sounds fun, right?
I'm hoping I'll have my plants in today and will have another garden update to show you tomorrow.
This is the first year it has bloomed since all that. Now I would just like it to get a bit of color. It's a really faint blue, mostly white and green.
It'll be interesting to see if this changes next year.
Well that's all for now, I've finished my bagel, now it's back to work.
Take care, Brandie
