I arrived 15 minutes after they opened & the parking lot was already full. I ended up with lots of herbs, all the tomatoes that I wanted and a few veggies thrown in, too. Now if we could only have some warm(er) weather! Still a threat of frost for early next week!

Yesterday I went to "Tomatomania"--a plant ( mostly tomato) sale that is held a a local garden center--White Farm Farm. I have been a few times before, but this year's sale was much busier than when I've gone in the past. Barb, the nursery mgr & an Isla friend, said their edibles( veggies, fruit) sales are doing great--so many people deciding to grow their own this year. They had all the tomato plants arranged alphabetically--145 varieties! I had looked at their website at all the types & made a list of what I was looking for....learned the hard way--1st year I went I just walked up & down --too many types to choose from!
