The tomatoes are pretty much done, but I planted some more cucumbers and beans back at the beginning of August, and they’re actually doing really well! Beans are so easy and satisfying to grow.

I’m hoping this more sheltered space (close to the door) will make the cucumber less enticing to the squirrels – this variety is a ‘patio’ cucumber, which has smaller vines but is supposed to produce ‘masses of fruits’!

Some eggplant is finally coming in – I’ve always found eggplant takes the ENTIRE summer to grow, and this year is no exception. We’ll probably only get a few.

Some lettuce mix is going a bit crazy. I’m terrible about thinning, but the jumble is just fine for harvesting a few handfuls of baby leaves at a time.

Over Labour Day weekend we headed up to Muskoka for a family wedding. The weather was sunny and hot, and the wedding itself was a lovely party! Unfortunately we both suffered from a severe case of cam-nesia and neglected to get any photos while all dressed up.

Found a little friend on the strip of beach.

I had a lot of good knitting time in the car on this trip, but I’m still buried under mountains of deadline knitting! Looking ahead, the calendar is filling up fast and there’s only few short months before *you-know-what*.

What are you working on this weekend?

    I went to a wedding over Labor Day weekend myself! Spent all of Friday and Sunday in the car, so lots of knitting.

    Beans are so fun to grow! You can practically see them sprout. Sadly, they often get NOMMED by the bunnies here, so you have to fence them pretty well.
    I spent the whole afternoon at Wisconsin Sheep and Wool festival, an impromptu outing with a good friend of mine who has an amazing capacity for spending hours wandering among the two barns’ full of vendors as well as looking at all the breeds of sheep. I needed a break from stress of home/family/work life and it was just perfect. Now I need to work on knitting up the yarn I bought…

    I did some work on my Rhinebeck sweater but not sure how it will turn out. I’m playing around with the patter & this is the first time I’ve done that.
