Well, first off, I have been around blogland visiting and noticed that some of you had posted pics of your gardens. So here are pictures of my humble veggie garden.. I have a lovely yard with a pond and lots of flowers but really never did any vegetable gardening. But with the prices the way they are and the tomato scare, I decided this year to do some container gardening. Here are my lettuce plants in an old tub. I have since eaten this lettuce and planted more!! Doesn't look like much but it was good!!!
The tomato containers are courtesy of my hubby. He had these old speakers (circa 1980) which have been in the closet for about 15 years! He finally decided they were not repairable so I ripped out the guts and used the boxes for my tomatoes.
And the flower box is full of basil. We have eaten a wonderful pesto a couple of times in the past couple of weeks.
And in the midst of my pruning and weeding in the Garden of Eden last week, I somehow sat on an ant hill. Needless to say, they were not happy with my behind on their front porch and I ended up with about 20 bites which swelled up and were soooo itchy! I will spare you the picture. Definitely not pretty!!
And in quilting news, I have finished my ALQS piece and it will go in the mail to my partner tomorrow.. I'm one of those "down to the wire" people. It's a bit larger than the perimeters laid out for the swap, but I couldn't hold myself back and had to add the striped border.. My partner likes purple which is not a color I work with often but I liked this enuf to make one for myself. I hope she likes it!!
With any luck in the next couple of weeks, I will start my 3 day work week. I've been negotiating this with my boss for over a year and we have finally added another paralegal to our firm so I can work a bit less and enjoy life a bit more. Seww keep your fingers crossed! That's it from here in Connecticut. Summer is in full swing and I LOVE SUMMER, so I may be a bit scarce til the cold weather returns, but I am visiting everyone and hope to post some finished projects over the next few weeks. Quilt til you wilt!!
