    So, I picked up some plants and shit from a local nursery called Strawberry Hill. Planted them over the weekend like a dirty fucking hippie. So far this year I have a new rose bush, a row of red bell peppers, a row of yellow bell peppers, a row of spinach, some potted Scarlet Begonias (see dirty hippie reference above), various herbs and a few house plants including something called a "Joseph's Coat" and an orange canna lily.

    So, what kind of shit have you planted this year like a dirty hippie playing in the mud?

    Nothing until the first of May, or it will get all wind burned and frozen.

    I never plant anything. I just count on the dandelions.

    i thought about using one of those upside down tomato gadgets for bell peppers. I'm not really a huge fan of tomatoes.
