Our annual trek out in the country to visit my favorite greenhouse was on the docket for today, so we headed out to Spring Creek to Evergrowin' Greenhouses.
I've written about our treks before...here's an old photo I found from nine years ago on the blog. We traveled down a two-lane country road, a wide one-lane road, across two one-lane bridges, graveled dirt road, back to a paved two-lane road, before turning into the EverGrowin' parking area! But...believe me, folks do find the place.
We've had a very rainy spring here in the Shenandoah Valley, so I'd put off purchasing my annuals. Hannah was also interested in finding some vegetable plants today.
The last frost date for this area is around May 10 - 15, although this weekend's low temperature is down to 36 degrees. As a result, all the plants we purchased today are safely stored inside our garage. Planting day will be coming soon!
We found almost everything we needed at Evergrowin' but still needed to find some cucumber plants and basil. Here's Hannah at a roadside market stand in Montezuma with some basil plants: This was the first time we'd stopped at this little roadside market, but I loved the signage: So here in Virginia we brought home begonias, geraniums, verbena, and veggie plants. And the guys here got lots of house projects accomplished, too.
