To Boot Or Not To Boot?

Our neighbour informed us about a new regular car boot sale every Sunday on Kemble airfield - he said it was very good and showed us some very healthy plants he had just bought. Husband, who is a dreadful stick-in-the-mud, said "Oh no you are not going, you would come back with junk". I left Husband muttering and pottering around the garden and zoomed down to the airfield. I came back with presents for Husband. We are always on the look out for square pots for the greenhouse and have been unable to find any. As everyone knows round pots do not fit into square holes and waste space. I also bought three dwarf carnation plants. Husband was grudgingly delighted!!!

I have a love hate relationship with boot sales, but the plant sellers are usually good.
Glad husband liked your purchases:-)

Well done to you!
It is the opposite in our house he is forever going to boot sales, and coming home with what I call junk. I have to grudgingly admit sometimes 'That was just what I was looking for'. when he surprises me with one of his better finds.

Love Granny

Some of those car boot sales are really good and many bargains can be found. Go for it! Just the once!

Hello Lindsay
LOL What a shame you don't live closer - I just made a present of about 20 square pots to the local community house garden group
Oh well, you win some, you lose some:)
Take care

Thanks all for comments - I might sneak down to the Car Boot this Sunday whilst Husband is busy in greenhouse!

I love car boot sales! Got my current pressue cooker there - just after Mother-in-law had bought herself a new one for £40 and it was too heavy for her to lift.

Glad you proved husband wrong!
