Well, I also decided to finally purchase my smartpots. We ordered them and they arrived yesterday. Our mail carrier has the strangest way of deliverying packages (and the Fedex guy too). We will occassionally find packages on our second story balcony next to the sliding glass door. This balcony is above the garage and is attached to our seldom used office (ok, it's really a box storage area at this point in time.). But it's the SECOND STORY! Why is our postal dude and fedex dude leaving packages up there? How do they get them up there? Are they throwing them? Climbing on their trucks? What gives? The first couple of times we would find packages on the ledge, which was odd, but now next to the door? A good 5 feet in from the ledge? Stuff will sit there for days before we go in that room.
But anyway... I have my smartpots!!!! And after they arrived, I checked where they were shipped from (becuase they made great time...) and they are from Paso Robles..... I'm going to be there Saturday. I could have saved the shipping and picked them up direct! D'oh!
And now we need to build some toddler proof barriers for the strawberry patch. My little guy likes to wander around the back yard foraging for food. He's in the peas, radishes and strawberries. He does bring them by for me to inspect before he pops them in his mouth (most of the time). But the majority of the strawberries he's claiming aren't ready. I guess he likes them a bit tart.
Well, happy gardening all! (I have to go save the strawberries).
