Our excellent Saturday adventure

March 3rd, 2012

We saw some unusual stuff at the garden store today. What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever grown or wanted to grow?


We stopped by the Farmers Association store on the way home from a birthday party to get some inspiration for this year’s victory garden (last year’s ended in sad and utter defeat). It’s a real farm supply shop–pretty exotic to us city mice. Helpful advice from a friendly lady as we selected a packet of crazy-looking snake gourd seeds: “plant it away from goats.”

Not a problem, I told her. I keep begging for pygmy fainting goats (just a SMALL herd–think how much our shepherd would love them), but Patrick is being quite unreasonable.

My favorite sighting was the sign for “bodacious” corn. I can only hope it grows into a giant stalk on which you climb to a heaven where George Carlin is god.
