S.M.'s church youth group had a plant sale. Dad and I ordered some plants. Today was the day to pick them up. Last year they had the plants in the yard by the church. This year there was no one there, so I called S.M. She said that they were in the Youth Group building, which was a little ways off, but you could drive to it without going out on the main road again. I found the building and went to get my plants. They had all the flowers Dad and I had ordered, but not the herbs and vegetables. Someone had taken some as "extras," and she brought some back for me.
I got begonias, portulaca, red geraniums, basil, thyme and rosemary. Dad got coleus, impatiens, and a tomato plant. It's supposed to be cold tonight, so we're afraid to put anything out. Basil turns black when the temperature gets below 40 or 45 degrees. The thyme should be hardy, and the rosemary okay at 40 degrees, but they're just little plants. I'll put the thyme and rosemary out when it gets a little warmer, and the other plants out when it's definitely going to stay above freezing at night.
I got a flyer from the Brandywine Conservancy saying that their plant sale was May 9 and 10, 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. I looked up when the Tyler Arboretum plant sale was, and it's May 2, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. The American Herb Society, Philadelphia Unit, sale is on May 14th, starting at 10:00 a.m. I called B.L. and left a message about those dates, and called S.M. to tell her. S.M. said she'd need to get back to me closer to those dates. I'll tell J.G, the garden club president, too. I printed out the lists of what plants were on sale at the Brandywine Conservancy, and which ones were on sale at the Tyler Arboretum. I am trying to narrow down what I want.
A few hours later: B.L. called back to say she had the 9th free. I called A.J. Her sister B. said they were pretty booked those weeks. I told A.J. that maybe on a warm day we could go to Longwood Gardens.
Later: I taped the CW reruns of Glee season three episodes 1 and 2, and watched much of the episodes. I arranged my videotapes in a box.
