I'm a convert

While running some errands this afternoon I passed a Super Wal*Mart, so I figured I'd kill two birds with one stone ad stop there to do my grocery shopping as well as picking up some seeds and some gardening supplies. The girls have been begging me for a long time now to start a garden. I was shocked at how much cheaper their prices were. I had to save at least $25 easy. I think it is worth the drive. I mean it really isn't that far away and if I hop on the thruway. I think I will be going there from now on.

As for the garden well we or shall I say Lillian picked out 2 strawberry plants, a blueberry bush, a red pepper plant, watermelon seeds, and a wildflower seed mix that is supposed to attract hummingbirds and butterflies. The two of us spent some nice quality time together this afternoon planting them. (My mom took Madeline out while we were gone to the Rat Place). I really hope that they grow well, that would save me tons of money in the long run. Lillian is a fruit fanatic, I cannot keep it in the house, and if you've been to the store lately you know how expensive it has become.
