One of our favorite local nursery centers was My Garden Nursery. They were right down the street from us, and we got to know the owners over time; it was a fantastic center, filled with great stuff for the kids as well as for the gardener. That's why we were super sad to learn (last year) that the owners were moving My Garden up to Bellingham - a solid couple of hours away from us.
Fortunately, they already had someone lined up to take over their space, which was exciting in itself. We packed Savannah into the car the other day and went for an adventure, and they are doing a fantastic job getting up to speed - we're super excited to see what they bring in, but already they've got some beautiful plants and flowers.
Chris, being a veggie garden addict, was extremely excited to see some unique items coming in, with the promise of more to come. This includes the Sun Sugar tomato plant - which we've only ever found up at The Plant Farm (another of our favorite nursery centers, although at 30+ minutes away, definitely more of a planned trip than a quick stop). Already (last week) 'Lil Sprouts was full of peas, potatoes, tomatoes, strawberries, herbs, and so much more (really, just go check them out!)
Chris is also very excited to see that they have brought in some columnar apple trees - have you seen these before? They're fantastic in pots, on patios or decks. They grow up in a column - skinny (at least for a fruit tree) - here's a link over to Google Images with a bunch of pictures so that you can get the idea.... ANYWAY, this is something Chris has always wanted to try, so maybe we'll do that this year. He's been putting an obscene amount of time into the new veggie bed - there's a post coming up soon about that whole thing - so we're moving back into the suburban farming realm (in an HOA controlled community, no less)
Another incredibly cool thing about 'Lil Sprouts is the hydroponics setup; they have a serious passion for hydroponics and aquaponics - if you're in the market, or just looking to talk to somebody about it, you should at the very least pick up the phone - or better yet, head on in there and check it out in person!
Hello! We blogged in the past about the Rednek Wine Glass, which is one of our favorite gift items over at The Weed Patch. Made in the USA, the original Rednek wine glass features a glass Ball brand canning jar on a glass wine stem, and a screw top lid. They are wonderful for tailgate parties, weddings, wine tastings, or just that perfect gift or conversation piece!
Recently we received a shipment of some of the latest additions to the Rednek Collection, and here they are!
For the beer drinker, we now have a Rednek Beer Mug! Features a metal handle made in Freeport, Pennsylvania, and a 32 ounce capacity Ball jar.
To add to the bestselling red Party Cup, we now have the Party Bucket....
Both are made of sturdy melamine, just like the party cup - red on the outside and white on the inside. The party bucket is perfect for ice, and the party shots come in a pack of 6, and are shot-glass sized.
Finally, we have the new bottle stoppers - great for pairing with a RedNek Wine Glass for that perfect combo gift!
