Yesterday's Adventure

Considering this is my first big outing in almost two weeks, it was an adventure for me. Yesterday we had errands to run. Had to go see the Doc to check on my ankle, which is actually doing a lot better! I'm not on crutches or using a cane at this point...just call me 'hop along'. I still can't run a marathon or go hiking or be on it for too long, but at least I can get my own coffee. We stopped for lunch at Knight's Diner.

Then we popped over to Northwest Seed & Pet to buy seeds for the garden. We decided to try the heirloom seeds this year & try our hand at saving the seeds to plant for next year. I still have research to do to figure it all out, but that's part of the fun! The seeds we bought are from Ellensburg from Irish Eyes Garden Seeds. We also bought a couple blackberry plants & a couple blueberry bushes. The folks at Northwest Seed & Pet are really helpful & knowledgeable. Now we just have to plan our garden out for this year.
This years seeds.

Oil is coming along nicely.

Good bye crutches!

YAY to no crutches! (This said from someone who's broken a leg three different times, and had foot surgery, too -- I have a hate/hate relationship with crutches!)

Glad to hear you are off those crutches...
and those lovely seed packets.
I just planted about 100 seed starter cups (using egg cartons to fill up with seed starter soil).
In my class we planted tomatoe's
carrots, peas, and about four different flower types.
Don't you just love spring?
Happy Earth Day!!!!

Hi, I'm so glad that you are feeling better and that you could hang your crutches in the willow ; ) That's a saying in The Netherlands !!
Those seeds look great. I hope you get a great crop out of those !!
Have a wonderful day and be careful with that ankle ; )
