Buying a Blueberry Bush and Beer

Couldn't Find a Blueberry Bush Twin. 
Jay read that blueberry bushes don't like to be alone. So, I convinced him that we should go pick up a twin. The spring garden center at the Home Depot across the river really is quite good. Unfortunately, there were no more little potted bushes of the type he bought last weekend. However, a few Burpee blueberry starter bushes were for sale. They were smaller but more than enough company to make Jay's first plant happy, I'm sure. 

Home Depot also sells the no-nonsense professional drain cleaner that we regularly use in the washing machine pipe. I think cold water detergents cause more build-up. The bill looked a bit overpriced for our goods. Then, we noticed that two plant pots were stuck together when rung up. So, we had to go to the car after walking through customer service. 

As long as we were on that side of the river, and because it was after 11:00 am, I wanted to go to Central City Brewers. There has been an empty half-gallon growler in the car for a while.

We hadn't gone by Central City in 2021. I was surprised by the large distillery right beside the brewery. I was also a bit surprised to see the price for filling my growler was now $12 too. Even though the weather is spectacular now and I should be thinking about summer brews, I couldn't pass up trying the Moonlight Rider Vanilla Stout. I'm sort of a stout guy, no pun intended.
