Photo of my loot from the Friends School plant sale
I've been gloating over my new plants all morning. It's really not just pure acquisitiveness, I hope -- I would be almost as happy buying plants for somebody else. Wednesday and Thursday I certainly loved just seeing all the plants when we unloaded them from the trucks and put them in their places on the tables.
Would have got more, but I must have put a jinx on several of the plants I most wanted because they were labelled "Crop Failure." But the volunteer pre-sale was great and uncrowded and well worth the time I spent volunteering. I'm going back on Sunday to see what it's like and to see if I can get a few things for half price that I was too cheapskate to buy at full price.
If you go, let me know how it was. I think they solved some of the problems, such as watering, they had last year (their first at the State Fairgrounds.)
