Spent a good couple hours in the garden this afternoon, weeding, a bit under-sunscreened (I’d applied earlier then gone out to a family thing, and didn’t reapply) and although I don’t burn, I do certainly have a bit more tan on the back of my shoulders! This photo is from June 12 (Tuesday) and trust me when I say that the lettuce there on the left is way bigger now! I harvested a bunch for a big salad tonight.
Everything else seems to be coming along well, the zucchini plants are finally growing more quickly, the beans are flowering, the peas are bushy and cute, and the tomatoes are looking good too. I planted many, many tomato plants (maybe 40?) and my goal is not to have to buy zucchini or tomatoes this summer! Although, I might still if I were to see cool ones at the farmer’s market…
Growing on the needles is the lace nightie from Interweave:
I’m using Alchemy Silken Straw (100% silk) and it’s coming out beautifully. I’m almost done, actually. It looks really, really small at the moment, but I know that since it’s silk and rather loosely knit it’s going to grow and grow once it hits water. Rather counting on it, actually. I’ll be wearing it as a layer over a cami, not as a nightie – it seems quite a bit shorter than the pattern, even though I added in an extra repeat of the lace pattern before binding off in the back.
