Harvest Monday 4-22-13

I am not a girly-girl. So why did I join the Sally Beauty Supply club this morning? Why was I even in there? Because when none of my sprayers worked and I wanted a small one to spray soapy water on aphids, I went looking online for sprayers and to my surprise, found that Sally’s has a wide variety for cheap. Not surprising, really. But once I got in there, oh my. More little goodies than I can begin to describe, for gardeners, travelers, all sorts of people not necessarily interested in beauty supplies.

9 oz bottles in various colors, around $2.50 each if you join the club, still under $3 if you don't. Sweet!

I got two. One for foliar spray and one for my Dr Bronner’s soap spray.  I’ll probably end up with a larger one for foliar, though.

Not much else to say today.  Harvest same as before, some salad greens, some herbs, and I continue to work in the garden and enjoy it. I bought a tomato plant that was about 3 feet tall and already had ‘maters on it. Caddo tomatoes, never heard of them. Decided to nab it and see how it does, so I actually have tomatoes ripening in the garden! (Cheating, much?)

Oh. And I’ve been seeing bees. Good times.

    bees are a good thing. my dad lost 5 of his hives over the winter…some died and the rest swarmed when he wasn’t looking.

  2. Good find with the sprayers. I keep several different ones in the garden area of the shop as they are handy to have ready to use and I like to keep them reserved for each items use separately. Your garden looks charming and healthy. Sounds like you are enjoying just being in it – which is half of the benefit of our gardens – an excuse to just dawdle and stand around in the sunshine and great out of doors.

    • I’m sitting in my garden right now when I should be figuring out what to eat. But the breeze is so nice and the dogs are at my feet. Yes, this is so much a part of the experience.

Hit me with it.
