My Garden & ShedirMay 15, 2007
Here are the pics!
***Edited to Add…Do you see the first sunflower in the row? The one on the very far left? This morning when I went out to the garden, it had fallen over and all of the leaves were limp and sad. I lightly lifted it out of the soil, only to find half of its roots were eaten. The culprit? A Gopher. Sierra warned me there was a hole in the yard and after a few minutes it was buried. I suspected it was a gopher, but I didn’t think he could get into my garden.
Sunflowers and corn (and weeds…just ignore those, I do.)
Zucchini (what you can’t see the carrots and bell peppers? They are under the canopy of the zucchini. The bell pepper will be moved soon. Today if I feel up to it.)
Do you see the baby zucchini? Here is a closeup.
My tomatoes are doing great! The one that was wilting has bounced back and has overcome whatever problems it was having. My remedy? Water and sunshine. I even have a baby tomato. I put the cage around them too late, so I couldn’t get it over the large one. I got it over half of it.
Finally, Shedir. I made this hat for a friend. I love the yarn. Like I said before, it was one of the most difficult knits for me, but that is because of my concentration issues. I enjoyed knitting it.
I am considering making a baby Shedir for my cousin’s baby. I was crocheting a blanket, but thanks to Madeleine it is now a ball of mess. (I love that Madeleine loves yarn, but am thinking she just needs to get her own.)
Also, Shedir has given me an idea for a new hat design. It will make me crazy doing it, but I have this inner desire…so I guess I will be going to the crazy house soon and will have a hat to show for it.
The tank I am making myself is going great! I should take an in-progress picture. I am almost up to the bust on the front side. I will give it a proper post tonight or tomorrow.
