Building Our Garden

We have been steadily working on our garden for the last few weeks, but it seems to be coming to a head now.  Today, we splurged at King Soopers’ Garden Center’s Memorial Day sale.  Bought lots of great annuals and a few perennials.  Lots of marigolds….  I love marigolds…  And the price was right.

We also went to Tatonka Farms to pick up our hanging baskets.  If you live in the foothills and have not visited Tatonka Farms, you are missing out.  This place is unbelievable.  About six weeks ago, we bought two large hanging baskets.  They had planted these about four weeks before and they were just starting to show signs of life.  Instead of taking them home with us, the owner of Tatonka Farms told us to leave them with her and she would nurture them in her greenhouse until late May.  Well, we just picked them up and we are so happy with the results.  They will be the centerpiece of our outdoor landscaping.  Best of all, at the end of the summer, we can return the baskets and the hangers and they will do it all again next year.

Tatonka Farms has lots more beautiful hanging baskets.  And they are made for people in the foothills of Conifer, Evergreen, Pine Junction, Bailey and Morrison.  They also have hundreds and hundreds of geraniums of all kinds.  Pansies and other flowers are all over.  It is just a sea of color.

Check it out.  We did, and it was worth it!
