Home Depot's Tomato Plants
While DH and I were at Home Depot today I couldn't help cruising through the garden area. Surprise, surprise! There were a couple racks devoted to tomato plants. Unfortunately, every plant was a soggy, slimy, thawed-out mess of what used to be a tomato plant.
Our average last frost date is ~May 20 (though sometime in early June is much safer). I suppose the stores start getting requests early and don't want to disappoint customers. On the other hand, how many people bought tomato plants (thinking if the store was selling them, it must be time to plant them) who now have a similar sad little mess in their garden?
