I have a confession to make. I… am afraid of my garden.
We moved here last summer, you know, and so I waved my hands and declared it too late to plant anything. Fiddle dee dee, I said! (Well, not really.) Next year, I said!
But now it’s next year and I don’t know if you’ve ever been to Georgia, but I find myself pining for the nice sandy loam I had in New England. The ground here is made of clay. Weeding requires a Herculean effort. I’m not sure I have the stamina to actually plant anything. And don’t even get me started on what this lovely red clay is doing to my children’s clothes.
Nevertheless, every March my thoughts turn to all the wonderful things I could plant, and I find myself thumbing through the nursery catalogs with a glint in my eye. Here—maybe I could plant vicariously, through you! That’s it! Go check out the Spring Hill Nursery One Cent Sale, why don’t you. Every plant in that category is buy one, get the second for a penny. Perfect. Plus, you can make it even sweeter: through March 26th, 2008 (that’s tomorrow), use coupon code 414465 to take $20 off your $20+ order. Order $20 worth and just pay shipping ($7.95).
And then send me a picture of your garden. Please.
