How Does the Garden Grow?

Here are a few pics of what's been keeping me busy.

What was in this hole?

It's pretty deep and right in the middle of the garden.

Oh, there it is, a GIANT rock!

New bean seedlings!

Pumpkin, zucchini and bean flowers!

There are also cucumbers, watermelon, honeydew and cantaloupe, beet seedlings and potatoes coming up. I put in 6 more sweet potatoes for a total of 18. It will be filling in fast.  I am also indoor sowing Brussels Sprouts, Purple Cauliflower, Broccoli and Baby Bok Choi.

I think I am addicted to this gardening thing!!!

The Table Runner That Wasn't

Many of you may remember my design wall with the table runner just sitting there staring at me...

No matter what I tried, it would not become the runner I wanted.  So, it stared at me every time I walked by the door, every time I fed the fish, every time I vacuumed in there.  Skip ahead of it driving me insane for a few weeks, DD is putting plastic bags in the bag holder and the elastic snaps.  It's only 12 or so years old, hmm, now what am I going to do?  DING! 

It never wanted to be a table runner, it's destiny was as a bag holder.

It is now happy and useful in the kitchen and not staring at me any more!
