Garden, Suit Up!

Deidre and I have been watching How I Met Your Mother on Netflix lately, so when I was planting some flowers around the yard I was picturing Barney telling my yard to “suit up.” So in honor of that delightfully offensive tv character, I present to you a quick gallery of my garden, suited up.

Hardware stores are bad for my wallet, good-ish for my garden.

Deidre and I took a trip to Lowe’s this past Saturday to pick up a few things for the house (and a project we’ve been working on which I’m sure Deidre will be happy to show off at some point on her blog). Naturally while we were there I had to spend some time in the garden center ‘ooh-ing’ and ‘aah-ing’ at all the plants. Of course I ended up picking some stuff up. A whole bunch of flowers (photo gallery to come later this week) and then a few veggies to add to the old veggie garden.

So I planted a few of the cabbage and broccoli in one of my raised beds (and some in what I like to call zone 2d) and the onions I planted around my freshly planted peach trees (zone 2b -you know- if you’re interested).

Thanks hardware store for making me buy your crap.
