My order from Amazon came yesterday!!! In the big box with the smiley face, garden treasures hid. I ordered three books, Backyard Market Gardening, The New Organic Grower and Carrots Love Tomatoes. They are in perfect condition and came highly recommended. I need to get reading!
The most exciting thing that i purchased though, is the P-touch label maker 2700 by Brother. I cant wait to get started making garden labels! Originally I was going to spend a fortune on pre printed labels from an online company until someone pointed out that their labels are exactly the same as ones made by a p-touch labeler. This model has really good reviews on Amazon and came recommended from many on DavesGarden.com. I am going to save hundreds of dollars now which is awesome. Plus i can label anything i want. My boyfriend is going to use it to label his home brews as well. I was glad that he thought of that because other wise he would have complained about me spending my money on useless stuff. Since he can use it, I'm in the clear, whew! I plan on labeling my 400 varieties of tall bearded irises, daylilies, hostas, clematis, roses, veggies and whatever else i can think of. The labels last for many years outdoors even in my northern garden. Now I need to buy the paw paw metal markers to stick them to.
The Cooks Garden catalog came yesterday too. It looks so yummy. I have already started circling tons of veggies. Here I go again!
