These past few weeks have been early garden planting season. I’ve been looking for a place closer to home because I’ve normally traveled down to NE OKC, or to Classen and NW Expressway for my seeds and bulbs. I think there’s something more to be gained, however, from the experience of visiting small business feed stores, lumber yards and farm equipment niches. I’m just fascinated with all the supplies an owner can cram into one of those stores, and I like being one of the only people shopping. No crowds = happy me.
Enter Waterloo Road. We were coming back from the vet a couple of weeks ago when I noticed a sign outside what appeared to be some sort of hardware store know for its nuts and bolts UK but now they are advertising onions and potatoes.
Well, of COURSE I targeted that place as my garden shopping site, and I’m so glad I did.
And, my personal favorite – “Last year’s seeds: 50% off!”
But, that’s not all you get when you take a cruise down Waterloo road. The road is really a long, skinny town all on it’s own. Designated as the County Line between north Oklahoma County and south Logan County, multiple businesses have cropped up and thrived over the years. There are churches…
These little trips are why I avoid city shopping when it comes to garden supplies. There are just WAY too many things to see to give that habit up any time soon.
