How Does Your Garden Grow

No very well if you let your plants fall out of your cart and not realize it.  We went shopping last week for seed potatoes, and I was very disappointed that they had only Russet potatoes, no red ones, onion sets and garlic.  We also purchased tubs to plant them in and potting soil.  When Mac went looking for the plants he couldn't find them any where, not in the house, the garage, the greenhouse or the garden.  He finally found the receipt where he'd paid for everything and realized he hadn't paid for the veggies, some how they'd fallen out of his cart (they'd done this once and he'd noticed and put them back in) and never made it home with us.

Most people here planted their potatoes this week so we'll be a bit behind, but that's ok, we'll still get them in.
