Today was an amazing day! I had a terrific day at a local Mud Sale even though I came home with a headache from the heat! I was in the sun most of the day and awake at 6:00am to get a good seat in the craft tent. It was CrAzY though! People were spending a lot of money for silly things. A small cabinet went for $55! I could have made it for $20! So I left that tent. My husband showed up and we went to the antique tent. My husband bid on a post digger (looks old), I will post pictures of that when it’s actually in my garden. Maybe tomorrow? My husband wasn’t exactly thrilled that I was taking pictures of him, but I did it anyway. 🙂
No real luck there either, so of course I got FLOWERS! I spent less than $30 and I got a lot of flowers! In fact, my mother-in-law might make out because I have no idea where I am going to plant them all. I even got two clematis for my trellis by garden table. I am excited to plant that!
After the mud sale, I decided to visit the garden to pull weeds, water, etc. I noticed my potato plants were looking a little dead. And I pulled them out and discovered POTATOES! A lot of potatoes! Super exciting! I have never planted potatoes before, so I had no idea how they are supposed to be harvested. It was a wonderful surprise!
I also found some peppers, carrots, tomatoes, and green beans! It was a great day in the garden! I think I will be making potato salad for tomorrow (not exactly the most healthy option, but still yummy!) It is so rewarding to grow your own food!
