Can't believe that Lowes is still selling warm season plants
I stopped in my local Lowes today to pick up a few things, not garden related. I had to go through the garden plant section, habit.
It is August 26 and they have nice, and very expensive, peppers, tomatoes, ETC. sitting on the shelf for sale, way too late to get a crop here. Several people were actually putting them in their carts! First frost date here is Oct. 17.
I couldn't resist asking them if they knew they were wasting their money. An older woman, with a northern accent, spoke up and said, " It is still hot enough for them and Lowes wouldn't be selling them if it is too late!"
I politely said OK, I wish you the best and moved on. I noticed an older guy, he was looking at the cabbage, smiling at me as I walked away. He just said "city slickers" and laughed.
