I don't do that many garage sales, but I may try to do more. They are kind of fun when you consider some of the people you see and talk to along the way. I found out about my Century plant, and I found a quilter that lives just down the road a bit and around the corner. When we were almost back home, just a few houses down the road, we stopped at another sale and met neighbors that we had not had the opportunity to talk to before. The lady's sister was there and when we told her where we lived, she advised us that her boyfriend just moved into the house next door to us. He isn't officially there yet, so we have not seen him yet. The house has been empty for a couple years, so it was a surprise... and she told us his name, so when we do meet him, we can address him by his name.
Last week we had friends give us some shrubs that they were replacing with roses. We weren't sure we really needed any shrubs, but we have enough space to find a place. I got them put in the ground as soon as we got home, and we have been watering them every evening, but they are looking pretty pitiful. We shall see if there is any hope for their survival.
One final update, my mini-garden is coming along nicely. My green beans probably need to be thinned out, and my tomatoes have a couple blossoms. I'm trying to do the best I can with my limited knowledge of the growing conditions here in south Texas.
