My little garden plot, where once again today I pulled out tons of weeds – pigweed is my nemesis – is doing pretty well. I’m waiting for that first ripe tomatoe – mine are all green and it will be a while before they ripen, but in the meantime I brought some back from my Dad’s and my sister’s gardens – he has red ones and she had some yellow ones to give me. They live only about 3 hrs away in Iowa but they are probably a good month ahead of us as far as growing season goes.
But what I did find in my garden — more cucumbers.
Nothing says fresh from the garden like sweet and sour dilly cucumbers (at least to me) and the dill was fresh from one of my pots too. I think it may be steak, cucumbers and corn on the cob for dinner tonight.
Now back to cutting the outer borders for my Camp Loopy quilt. The rows and sashing are all sewn together. Could be I just might get to piecing the background tomorrow and getting it layered ..or I may just sit out on the patio and knit. I’ve only got about 5 or six rows on my Summer KAL sweater to do on the cowl before I bind that off and see if I like it or hate the cowl (I’m hoping I like it ’cause I don’t want to rip all that back out), and then I’ll just have the armhole trim to add and sideseams to stitch – and a whole lot of ends to bury.
