On Friday afternoon I made my first visit to a Pikes Nursery. Given that Pikes has been in Atlanta longer than me I had high hopes that it would be like the nurseries I’ve seen in England on YouTube. I was so disappointed. Not only did the few vegetable plants they had for sale look terrible, they were twice the price of the collards I bought at the NC Farmers Market. Admittedly those collards died, but I put that on me. Today I am thinking of visiting the GA State Farmers Market in Forest Park and see what that is all about.
If you sold your Atlanta United tickets for Saturday night’s game against Inter Miami you were the biggest winner of the night. Why? Because Lionel Messi did not play, and he was the only reason tickets were being sold for ridiculous prices. Oh, the United played a good game, winning 5-2.
I wanted to go hiking yesterday morning but the weather, specifically the heavy overnight rain and the cloudy morning skies squashed that desire. Regardless, I had a good Sunday morning with the Gators upsetting Tennessee and all, even though I was completely skunked at Connections yesterday.
I’m continuing the elimination of things that no longer bring me joy. This time it’s my adopted Bundesliga soccer team — Werder Bremen. After another loss and a completely unpromising season I just can’t take it any longer. I may check in later in the season, but as of now I just can’t put in the effort to care.
I solved today’s Wordle in five attempts; my starter today was CHALK.
