Here are a few of my Winter Wonderland blocks I've done this week. I only have a few left to go, then I can begin laying it out on the design wall. I'd really like to get it done and entered into our quilt guild's show in September, but that might be a stretch. Time will tell. I find the more of these I sew, the better I get. I have so many red fabrics that it has been fund pairing them together!
Now to the Friday Vegetable Garden report for week 4. I must say we have had monsoon-like weather for most of the past week! The weather reporter last night said we should be in the 80's and sunny, but no....the monsoons continue. I mananged to snap a few photos during a dry spell yesterday. Other than the lettuce, there hasn't been a lot of growth - just too wet! Only half the sugar snap peas and half the beans have germinated, so I may replant once the sun comes back for good.
The pumpkins seem to like the rain - several large, new leaves! Mr. Squash thought we ought to put these little pumpkin stakes out - they usually go by the front door during Halloween!
Check out the potatoes in the potato tower! They normally don't like to be wet, but they don't seem to mind it here! I need to begin adding more soil so they will produce potatoes all the way to the top!
Poor little melon below....he has a new melon buddy on the left that hasn't yet germinated. The irrigation guy put out those cute little drip lines last week!
Eggplants on either side of the drip line are about the same as last week. But all of the sunflower seeds to the right next to the little wire fence have germinated. I don't know who will get their produce first - us or the squirrels...stay tuned later this summer!
