Garden - 2010

I was at Home Depot a couple of days ago getting some flowers for Eric. He needed them for a experiment for the Environmental Science merit badge. As I was there I grabbed a few plants for the garden. Yes it is the beginning of March and it still could freeze, but I am willing to take my changes. One person perusing the garden section asked if I was going to grow them indoors until the chances of frost were over. I said no. I was thinking to myself I would cover the plants with sheets like my parents did when I was a child. I also remembered the clear plastic things with water in them that Grandpa Rogers had around his tomato plants years ago to protect them from frost. There are ways to get started and so some tomato plants along with some peppers and a squash plant made their way into the ground tonight. The now accompany the herbs the are in the neighborhood from last year.

The garden is back

As for the flowers, the will be meeting a little motor oil for the experiment. I feel sad for them, but that is how a boy learns.
