A Shopping Trip

19 05 2011

A few weeks ago I headed up to the Fedco Tree sale in Clinton.

My homeroom students raised some money during their activity night that they donated to the garden. I thought it would be a good idea to spend some of that money on blueberry plants. Who doesn’t love blueberries? I bought 3 bare root plants all of which fruit later in the season  coinciding with the start of the school year. I also bought some potatoes, a small bag of Kennebec and another of Adirondack Blue. Considering how much my students like hot peppers I also bought two purple hot pepper plants!

Although it is a bit of a long drive to get up to Clinton it was a beautiful day and well worth the trip. I even stopped to take in the view of the rapids on the Androscoggin.
