We also drove up the road to a nearby roadside stand where I know the lady always sells different flowers & plants. I wanted a few things for an outside planter I have...and I felt like the boys needed a change of scenery.
Edison saw that she was selling strawberry plants 3 for $1. He BEGGED me to buy some. Edison is my garden boy. He always has been fascinated with planting things and watching them grow. He especially loves strawberries. My father in law has strawberries in his garden and we always have to keep a close eye on Edison because he will pick them as soon as he sees them...when they are still green.
I guess I'll need to figure out a spot where we can start our own strawberry patch. I didn't buy the plants for him today but at that price I can buy a dozen and let him tend his little patch. Now, how to explain to him that he won't actually have any strawberries until next summer!
