Today my daughter participated in the Special Olympics. She ran the 50 meter dash and also threw a ball as hard as she could in the soft ball throw. I stood down-field from her and told her to throw the ball and hit me! What an opportunity for her! lol! She didn’t. She sure tried hard though!
This is the motto – makes me tear up every time I hear it. . .
The school where the Special Olympics were being held also held a plant sale. The students plant and sell these. I got this HUGE tomato (Roma) plant, and these three perennials for a total of $4.00! What a deal. The plants were just flying out of there. The perennials are called Dame Rocket. After I got home I googled them and found out they are very invasive. Huh. In a neighboring state people are encouraged to pull them up by the roots as they find them while hiking or camping. Huh! Now what do I do? Where I’d plant them they wouldn’t have far to spread – and they would be protected on three sides so the seeds wouldn’t fly around. . . Our yard is so brown and run-down I almost think it would take an extremely invasive plant to survive! It will be a couple weeks before I plant so I’d really appreciate any comments and advice.
