Garden Update: May 22, 2010

The family went to the McKinney farmer’s market this morning and found some good deals. One the way back we stopped at the local nursery off Greenville. They had a sign out front ‘retiring, everything must go’. I asked the lady helping me what the story was, she explained that the area would soon be the new stadium. I was not impressed, an over-priced, over-hyped, concrete shrine to the religion of football replacing a local nursery with lots of beautiful old native trees.
Anyway, I did get a great deal on some plants. Their tomatoes were $1 each. I knew I needed to replace 2 of my upside-down tomatoes, and figured I could find room for an additional 2 on top of that. Those upside planters don’t seem like a good match for little seedlings. I think you need a plant that is over 12″ in height to start with. Also, Amber wanted to fill up some of her pots with geraniums, so we got a flat of those too.
Most everything is growing pretty good right now. I think it is too hot for the new carrots to survive in the full sun. They sprout up, but then die within a day or so after they experience the full Texas sun.
