About mid-week I made my way over to Watson’s Greenhouse for some gardening inspiration. I’ve decided to make/buy a trellis or two this year and wanted to scope out what they had in stock as well as the designs available. I especially liked this arch you see above. Don’t you think it would look cool with beans or cucumber vines growing up over the top? I could walk through it and pick dinner.
While I was at the Garden Center I remembered there was a Costco business center nearby so I decided to go have a look. The problem with Costco is… You tend to want to buy everything in sight. Which is why I try to avoid it at all costs.
For example. I needed a new strainer. And guess what? Costco had on for only $2.59. They also had a cake spreader, tongs, new measuring spoons, a wisk, loaf pans and so on.
I hate Costco.
I think my best purchase of the week was at Costco of all places. I came across a 25 lb box of Roma tomatoes for $10.89. I knew my family could not go through 25 lbs of tomatoes in a week so I made a quick phone call to my neighbor Girly Girl and we decided to split the box. We each paid $5.40 for 12.5 lbs of tomatoes. Not a bad deal in my book. Even though we all know there is no comparison what so ever between a Costco tomato in February and an Heirloom tomato in August. Oh man, it is absolute torture having to wait for real produce. Isn’t it?
Here are the pictures of everything I picked up this week:
