This summer I am attending Dave's baseball games, now that we have come to an agreement that I may KNIT during them. I am also to document his playing for all eternity, here on the blog. We waited the whole game for them to finally put the old man in the batting lineup, as he is a mere 30 years older than most of his teammates. Lots of younger guys struck out, but not my man. He hit a doozey, but unfortunately it was the last out of the game. O well.
One of the perks of going with him is that I have an hour pre-game to visit my local garden centers and get a few plants. I really lucked out yesterday as Lowe's was already having a close-out sale on these begonias.
They were selling them for $.50 a six pack, so I got 20.
And the Sweet Potato vines were $1 each instead of $3. I got 18 of those. I would have gotten more but we were in Dave's car, full of baseball gear, and very little room for plants. These are going into the new flower boxes, and will fill just a tiny amount compared to the space I will have. The planters will hold over 80 square feet of soil and plants. Lots more shopping to do for me and my houseguest Rose who is flying in from Chicago tomorrow. Woowoo!
