A beautiful day

Today it was like summer outside.  Sarah helped me plant a few hundred flower bulbs for our cutting garden.  We put them in buckets.  And maybe she can even sell flowers to help her earn money for her trip to China?  I still have hundreds of more bulbs to plant.  I got carried away at the store.  I always do.  Nicole was not here to stop me.  Not that she really could stop me!  But I ran out of buckets, so we need to get more.  I like the idea of growing flowers in containers.  You can put them in the garden to fill in any empty spots.  When they are finished blooming, you can replace them with another bucket.  No more digging up gladiolas and Dahlias.  Today we planted…Ixia mix, Lilly called Kingdom, Zantedeschia , Steppenkerzen, Orfeo Dahlia, Gladiolas called expresso, After Schock, Buggy, and Passos, Dahlia Kogane, Crocosmia Lucifer, and Iris Hollandica, Alehemilla Mollis, and Eryngium planum.

Pretty, I usually don't plant flowers, I like them.

But my garden budget doesn't afford me to plant them. So I plant veggies, because we can eat them.
