After the Sunshine Garden Sale, we headed down to Zilker for the Austin Organic Gardeners' Plant sale. Naturally the tomatoes looked much better at the AOG sale, but we were both tomato'ed out, and they don't have the same variety as the Sunshine sale. But they do have ornamental plants - and so we bought some plants, put them in our car, and then walked around the gardens because we paid our $2, we might as well get our money's worth.

After Zilker, we went to Gordough's Public House for lunch (delicious). Then there was the stop at Shoal Creek Nursery to pick up some Artichokes (Roberta) and Bamboo Muhly (me). And finally, at like 4 in the afternoon, back to Roberta's house where there was the counting and organizing of the tomato plants, the walk around the yard, the saying "hi" to Roberta's chickens, the dropping off of tomato plants at Ana's house, the walking around Ana's yard looking at her garden (and her drainage solutions work she's doing), and, of course, just sitting around shooting the breeze before I finally decided to head home.

As I was pulling into the driveway, my husband sent a text, "I used to have a wife. Have you seen her?" I guess telling him that I'm going to be 'gone all day' doesn't translate into "I'm going to be out of the house for 10 hours" for him.
