Oops, I did it again!

Look Ma, I'm on a sign!
Just got back from my talk at Blomidon Nurseries and may have accidentally done it again.. came home with more plants! What can I say, I'm a sucker for a well grown plant! Thought I'd share some of the photos I snapped today before and after my talk.

Tomorrow, I'm off to Moncton to the Southeastern Farmer's Co-op from 11 to 1 pm.. Can't wait!

Love love love sweet potato vine and this one is gorgeous!! 
Another deep hued sweet potato vine. I know that I blog for PW, but that doesn't
change the fact that I love these in my pots!! (I will never endorse something that I don't LOVE)

Flats of Red Russian kale seedlings - a fabulous veggie for a 4 season garden. 

I was ridiculously excited to see Cheddar cauliflower at Blomidon!!! I have never
seen this offered before in transplant form. It produces glowing orange curds that are
delicious and loaded with vitamin C! (I may have bought a few packs.. where to put them?)

Heirloom tomatoes - Cherokee Purple, Black Cherry, Green Zebra, etc. 

Was so excited to learn that their asparagus, rhubarb and many of their
berries are LOCALLY GROWN! Hardy hardy hardy..

I resisted, but was very tempted to add these beauties to
my new berry patch.. Kind of regretting not getting
them now.. sigh..

Drifts of purple and white alyssum. A great plant for under tomatoes and edging veggie
beds as they smell great, look pretty and attract beneficial and pollinating buggies.

I really wanted this! Imagine it at the end of a pathway lined in lavender or catmint
or boxwood or... well, you get the idea. What a perfect destination for a pathway.

Fiberglass pumpkins. They look small in the photo, but the big ones
are HUGE (but not too heavy).. they are about 2+feet tall.. I think I need three of them
in various colours and sizes..

Another shot. Loved them so much.
