On Saturday my sisters and I travelled to a couple of plant nurseries in the area as well as a stop at a retail shop that had some plants for sale. I ended up spending more money than I had intended; I have to be careful, being at a plant nursery for me is like a kid being in a candy shop.

I ended up buying a variety of flowers and veggies for the gardens. On the flower side there was two different colours of vincas; I place them around the bird bath in the front garden, zinnias, red salvias, a couple of angelonias, portulaca, a pineapple sage, three different colours of impatiens, a lantana, a fan flower, a red purslane (I need to buy a yellow one as well), some marigolds, and an unknown that I love the flowers it had. On the veggie side there was celebrity tomatoes, roma tomatoes, green (bell) peppers, sweet banana peppers, jalapeņo peppers, pimento pepprs, and eggplants; some of my veggies I sow seeds instead of plants. The cost of bedding plants have gone up this year. I am contemplating building a small greenhouse and starting my own seedlings instead of buying from the nurseries.

Now I need to put the carburettor kit in the tractor; the needle valve is letting the fuel bowl overflow, so I can get the veggie garden ready for planting.
