No Stitching

Hello friends!  Still no stitching happening around here.  Between work, the garden, and Betty I have been staying busy, busy, busy.

I had my first harvest from the garden this week.  A few radishes (I should have left them a few more days) and a handful of lettuce.



As you can see everything is growing like crazy.  I counted 21 flowers on my marigolds.  I have a baby squash and a baby tomato now.  LOL  I am a proud mama!



I still had a few of the succulents left from my adventure to Lowe's.  I made a gnome home using an old rusty roasting pan that belonged to my mother.



And a post from me just wouldn't be complete without a picture of Betty.  Thank you all for stopping by and know that I really appreciate your comments and feedback.  Have a great week!

Beth said...

Same with me - gardening lots, not stitching much. I like your little gnome garden.

We used to have our own vegetable garden when I was a child with all sorts of vegetables and salads. It's wonderful to eat ripe tomatoes just from the garden.
The gnome garden looks like a little paradies.

Looks like you will be having quite a few squash! I haven't checked our plants today--go attacked by mosquitoes yesterday and I have at least three welted bites! Staying in today! I should tell my husband to check the radishes... it's been ages! He should have seen some by now! He is a 'newbie'... Ha!

Betty certainly looks like she's settled right in at your home, Myra! Is she now the "queen of the castle?"

Your garden is growing almost in front of our eyes--amazing! And your sweet gnome garden is adorable. Great use for the old roasting pan, too!

Enjoy your day, my friend...

How exciting to have radishes and lettuce! Soon you'll be having more squash than you know what to do with, lol. I have a few baby tomotoes on my plants, but the zucchini plant is still very small. Betty looks like she enjoys the yard too.

Catherine said...

Hello, Myra!!! Your garden and garden treasures look fabulous! There's nothing like fresh food, is there? And Betty, what a beauty! Sure wish she and Panzer could meet!
