It must be Spring!
I was at one of our local plant nurseries the other day, and they had pink tomato cages. Pink. o.O
If any of you local folk are into that kind of thing (I think there were green ones, too, but I was sort of blinded by the pink), you can find them at Millcreek Gardens. In the parking lot.
My tomato cages, however, are not pink. We made them out of concrete reinforcement wire after I got tired of having my tomatoes get knocked over by strong winds every year. These babies have held up great for years. (You may have to click for a bigger version to see the detail.) There are a zillion tutorials on the Internet for building these, if you want some of your own.
I guess it’s also time for a patio update. So far this year we’ve gone from this (see previous post)
There’s still a lot of work to do, but at least we’re making good progress. Already we’ve spent quite a few hours enjoying the patio.
By the way, that plastic stuff is garden cages covered with plastic – protecting my newly planted green beans.
Say, does anyone know anything about pressure washers? I wanted to rent one to clean up the fence before staining it. DH said maybe we should just buy one. I thought he figured that by the time we spent the money on the rental, we might as well put it towards buying one. Today he said it was only because if we buy one, it will come in a box and be easily transportable. (That makes lots of sense, eh?) Anyway – if you have one or have rented one – any thoughts on buying vs. renting, or type to get if we buy one?
