Bloomin' Weather


We just passed our no freeze date where I live, which means we can safely plant our annuals. The local nurseries look like there was a run on plants -- totally wiped out. And now there are freeze warnings. I don't believe them.

I've been busy planting and had to pick up more plant food today. Osmocote is little yellowish balls that you mix into the soil before you add the plant. The great thing about it is that you can forget about feeding. No more mixing the messy green stuff all summer long. Feed once and forget about it.

The bottle says the food time releases for four months. To be perfectly honest, I sometimes give them a little food boost after three months, but it still beats having to feed all the plants on a frequent basis.

Here's to happy planting and no freezes!

Five cupcakes for Osmocote.
