The tomatoes are filling in nicely along with the peppers, eggplant and basil. The summer squash seem to grow by leaps and bounds each day. The Delicata squash are a bit slower, but they look good. The winter squash are beginning their annual sprawl across the yard and this year I want to mulch them better, so I don't have a field of tall grass with squash runners amuck.
Just above the poppies is the row of blueberries and eggplants; above them are the lavender roses. This year I'm going to let the roses go natural. No more sprays; just heavy mulching and frequent cutting back of the spent blooms. Fine Gardening's article (though I can't find it on their site) has encouraged me to go organic and force them to toughen up!
Requisite fiber content: I knit a bunch of hats! My Memorial Day mini-break was to visit friends a couple of hours away. While at their house, it rained a good bit, so swimming, working in their garden and hiking were somewhat curtailed. Sitting on the porch, knitting, talking, knitting, eating, reading and knitting were in high demand. My hostess knit at bit too, making an orange coaster.
I will be happy after the house is put back together and I can move around my dye studio more easily, every surface is not covered with non-fiber related tools and I have a place to sit and spin. I am going a bit crazy in that department.
