Monday harvest was pretty good with cucumbers and tomatoes in the white strainer, some cherry tomatoes, few beans, raspberries, strawberries and blackberries!
That same day I also picked some lettuce and three teeny squash. I gave up on them. Would it be worth my effort to bake them or wouldn't they be good???? I am giving up on growing butternut squash. They never do well and I really don't have the room.
I love my new chair pads! The old ones were looking pretty sad! The blue in them go nicely with our blue counter.
Monday was my lucky day as I received this in the mail from Emilysincerely! She had said she would send me some celery seed from what she had collected but with it she included this wonderful bar of homade soap that she made and the beautiful card! The bar of soap is made of Olive, Coconut & Palm Oils, Water, Lye, Essential Oils and Organic oats. It is called Smooth Lavender. Smells so good and I love it! Thank you so much Emily!
I harvested my last cabbage and pulled the rest of the carrots out of the carrot boxes on the deck. I have a few carrots planted elsewhere but they are not ready yet.
Pretty sad looking, huh!!! I planted some patty pan squash late and they were looking good. Then one day I went out and they were completely wilted! Oh, well, I don't like pattypan squash very well anyway. But my dog does!!!!!!
Lookie at all the peppers! I didn't think I would get hardly any but a couple of my plants decided to produce. I let some of them turn red before picking. They aren't real big but I am happy with them! Also picked lettuce and a couple spinach leaves, cherry tomatoes, sungold tomatoes and a few beans that day.
It is back to Hobart Area Concert Band practice now and I will also be teaching a couple piano lessons. Life has gotten busy! The band has been invited to play at the 9/11 Memorial Service in Coffee Creek Preserves.
Our local quilt shop had a half off sale so I bought material for two lap quilts for each of the love seats in the living room. This is the material I choose (with some help) for the one quilt.
This is a close up of the one material that I fell in love with and we built the colors of the other materials around this one. I love the music notes and the hearts!
The other quilt will be all batiks and these prints were a stretch for me!!! I think I will really like it when it is finished! Now I just need time to work on them!
Finished knitting some dish cloths. This is my mindless work when I am too tired or lazy to think!!!!! It really seems like fall in our neck of the woods to me and my garden is winding down and so am I!!!! Christmas will soon be here! LOL
