I would like to thank all of my customers for coming and buying plants at my plant sale last weekend. You endured heavy rainfall but you were eager and couldn’t wait to get some new plants for your garden. I enjoyed chatting with all of you.
Guess what, I found more tomatoes in the greenhouse and still have lots of selection left if you missed the plant sale. I grew all heirloom tomatoes and the red cherry tomato plants sold out first. I have more cherry tomato plants coming but it will be another week or two before they are ready to leave the nest.
I still have lots of starter vegetables left over. If you didn’t get some kale I have both Red Russian and Lacinato kale.
This was the view of our plant sale setup just before the sale started. I even had lawn then.
The weather couldn’t have been worse that day. Oh wait, Sunday topped it all with record rainfall. At least we didn’t have to water our gardens.
The quiet before the storm of people. I was expecting early birds but it didn’t happen. I was actually worried no one would come. The clock ticked nine and people came with trays in their arms. It was a blur after that as hundreds came to look and buy plants.
My lawn has seen better days but don’t worry it was mostly moss anyway. It will come back and I take this as a sign of a good sale day. You can see by this photo that I still have lots of tomato plants left and they all need a home. So here is what I will be doing. I will be hosting another sale this Saturday, May 10. But there is one slightly tricky condition. My daughter in law is due on May 11 to have our first grandchild. If my plant sale sign is not at the end of my driveway you will know we are at the hospital getting baby cuddles. If it’s up please drop by and visit. Of course, I could just put up a sign at the end of the driveway saying sale cancelled, we are having a baby. That would bring about a chuckle or two.
So mark you calendars, May 10 from 9-2 is the next plant sale at 4606 Arthur drive in Ladner. For those of you wanting basil it’s too cold at night still. Did you know it has to be night-time lows of 15C for Basil to go out? Its coming but lets wait for warmer weather. I don’t want to sell anyone plants that I know will not thrive.
