Get ready to garden

I know some of you are still buried in snow—and I’m sorry about that—but the good news is that spring is coming. And if you’re a gardener, chances are you’ve been gearing up to make a purchase over at Burpee. If so, let me make it a little sweeter for you: Right now you can stack coupon codes GARDEN15 (for 15% off) and AFFSHIPPER (for free shipping).

It’s not a huge savings, but if it’s for an order you were going to place anyway….

(And I’m only a little bitter that they don’t ship tomato plants to GA. Just as well; they don’t ship them until April 30th, and I’ll be planting next week.)

    Planting next week?!…we don’t know each other or I would call you a really mean name in a jokey kinda way ;-) We’re having a heat wave here…51 degrees! Can’t plant anything til May (?!?!) if we’re lucky!

      The perks of living on the surface of the sun, js! Pretty much as long as we plant after Easter, we clear the frost and all is well for my standard summer veggies (tomatoes, peppers, cukes, zucchini, beans, and herbs).

      Now is probably the wrong time to tell you that I planted my peas about three weeks ago, right…? ;)

    That sound you hear is me wailing and gnashing my teeth! It’s so unfair! But Burpees is a great site. Thanks for the tip!

    The husband is preparing to plant our yearly garden and got packs of Thompson grape seeds and is building the accompanying trellis/thingamajig for them to grow on.

    And swear to God, I tossed the packet of seeds aside and was all, “Do you think grapes will grow here?”

    *blink. blink, blink*

    “Um. Yes. I do. We live in the Napa Valley.”

    Oh, right. DId I say grapes?? Well, then. Carry on.
