I bought a bunch of veggies today. How I love summer veggies! But the broccoli and cauliflower are still being imported, apparently, because the prices are outrageous. You won't catch me paying $5.00 for one.
Instead, I got baby cukes, fiddleheads, celery, sweet peppers and new russet potatoes.
I also bought pansies -- my very favouritest flower in the world, along with gerberas. My planters are (allegedly) being picked up by B. at rom's today and I hope to have them stocked with pansies and hanging on the porch railings this evening.
I want herbs, too. Parsley, oregano, basil... But I am not sure where to put them, if my planters occupy all the available railing space. I will think of something.
Summer truly begins, in my head, when I buy my first flowers.
