Re: What's everyone doing?
I love the Costco planters. My girls have been giving them to me for the last couple of years for Mother's Day. I've been getting at least one and sometimes two. They last almost the whole Summer or at least the majority do and in some cases, a couple of plants survive the winter and bloom again. When that happens, I'll fill in the dead plant's spot with another annual. I'll be home for Mother's Day this year so I'll have to make sure I put in my order
. Last year I missed out because I wasn't home.
My daughter sent me pictures of her new hobby, container planting. Hundreds of dollars spent that the produce doesn't nearly warrant. Last year I wound up with a cucumber and tomato plant. The space I allow for growing things, only flowering specimens are desired but I must admit watching the cucumber spreading it's tentacles up the wiring cage was kind of cool.
