wow how big is your yard ?

Comment by Mary Ann Morris on May 8, 2012 at 6:22pm
absolutely worth the gas money, but like all auctions, you need to decide your 'price' and stick to your guns! it is like going to the plant auction in the netherlands: you buy a shelf (which may be flats or containers) or the entire 4 shelf rack....we take a 1 ton truck, 14 ft trailer, with floor to ceiling racks!!! Last year, a amish gentle man asked me what nursery we were buying for, it was shocked when I said NO nursery, just my garden! gotta smile

So you went from Minnesota to Iowa to get what you bid on . Now was it worth the gas money to go and get ?

First Beans From Second Planting of Pole Beans

"Pole beans are so easy to grow! Just plop the seed in the ground and make sure they have something to climb on. This is a new variety I tried this year. I just love the apricot-colored blooms. (And the beans taste good, too!)"

Early Fall Color

"Correct, Keryn. No frost yet. We usually get our first frost in early November, although it wouldn't be too usual to get one towards the end of October."
