Beautiful day over here. It´s in the mid 70s and not a cloud in the sky. Perfect! This morning we went to Glückstadt (look for "Fotos" at www.glueckstadt.de) for their autumn festival. Today´s market was dedicated to plants and vegetables. I don´t think I have ever seen so many heads of cabbage in my life. There were a lot of plant vendors from Holland as well. One guy had over 200 (!) types of bulbs. I went on overload at his stand, left with 50 Euros in bulbs and the realisation that now I actually have to plant them. Dh had the fun job of also carting around two huge climbing roses. His arms now look like he was attacked by a cat. Right before we were about to leave I got suckered into a cabbage toss. If I was able to throw a head of cabbage into a crate about 25 ft away, I´d win a crate of cabbage or apples. Those years of basketball in high school paid off! The crowd went crazy! My one minute of fame. I won a crate of apples. The thought of 8 heads of cabbage to deal with was too much for my 5 braincells. So now I not only have to plant all those bulbs but also have to figure out what I am going to do with 20 lbs of apples.....ggg Any ideas for me?
Off to spend some time with a very good friend of mine.......my deck. :0)
