I managed to drag my giant pot over to my mobile home without too much trouble. All three drains are directed towards the pot. I still need to put some screen over the ends of the pipe so that critters don't crawl up.
With that chore done, I decided to take my birthday money and buy shoes and a fruit tree. Unfortunately, May is not a great month for planting since it is about to get really hot. They had 2 sad looking mandarin orange trees and I was tempted to buy one but then decided to wait until the Fall to give my tree a better chance at survival. They had other trees but I didn't want fig or avocado and the peach and apricot need to be sprayed every year and I'm not sure I will remember to do that. They also had grapes and pomegranate. I planted a pomegranate at my rental house and it is a nice tree but it takes many years to get edible fruit. The sign said they had raspberries too. I would have liked one of those but they were all out.
Next I headed to the shoe store. I looked at the entire selection including the men's shoes because I have a wide foot and men's shoes are wider. There wasn't much padding in the shoes no matter what the price. I even tried on the $140 super-duper walking shoes but they weren't that great. Certainly not worth $140.
I ended up buying a pair on sale for $20. They had a good tread and were dirt colored. Good for walking on my rocky dirt road. I also bought some $15 gel insoles. They make the shoes feel much better. It's funny that the insoles are almost as much as the shoes. My total shoe purchase came to $37 with tax.
Since I didn't have a tree to plant in my pot I decided to take all of my old seeds and plant them all. Some of them were from 2001! I doubt many of them will sprout but it will be interesting to see what, if anything, comes up.
Seeds found in pyramids have been reported to sprout, so who knows?!
I love new walking shoes. So many miles to take them.
KoBold, they made better seeds back then. haha.
Over the Cubicle, I love new walking shoes too and yet I find it so hard to get rid of the old ones. I need to throw them out now instead of throwing them in a closet for 'just in case'.
