April Showers Bring Vegetables! (Day 107)…

by agirlandhermutt on April 18, 2010

I’ll give you $1 if you can guess what I started my day off doing. Did you guess walking? If so, then be prepared to receive your dollar.

Boston seems to be a constant state of rain these days. We have a few beautiful days of sunshine and happiness only to be followed by a series of rain and miserable thoughts. Can you tell that I’m done with the April showers?
Today was no different. It started off being a sunny day and quickly turned into this…

There really isn’t anything more annoying than getting 3 or 4 miles from home only to have it start pouring down rain. However, I tried to make the best of it by checking out all the plants that are now available at Home Depot. I’m in the process of planning out my veggie garden and I was excited to see some great looking plants ready for the takin’!

Home Depot also had some great flowers available. I tried last year to do a cute little flower railing garden, but I failed for the most part. 
April showers certainly are bringing the flowers! They are also brining the veggies and that excites me. I’ll keep you posted on what makes it home with me to get a home in my garden.
On the walk back from Home Depot I was pleased to have the rain lay off for a bit so I could walk in a bit drier conditions. A walk along the Charles is much nicer when it isn’t raining.
Oh, and have I mentioned how much these geese freak me out? I’m convinced they are going to poke me to death one day. I take photos of them so should I be attacked you can track those buggers down. Revenge!
Quality day despite the rain. It wasn’t such a shabby Sunday in the end. Now I’m off to do some basketball watching. Fingers crossed the Magic come away with a win!
Question of the day: Do you have a garden? If so, what will you be planting this year?
