Drumroll, Please...

Thanks to everyone for their nice comments on my 400th post and all those wonderful guesses!  Only one person came close to the correct number of beans - Lynn of Sew 'N Wild Oaks!  There were 1,100 beans in the jar and Lynn guessed 1,023, plus one rock that was there, but just wouldn't fit in the jar so I left it out!  Congratulations, Lynn!  The Bunny Run kit will be sent to you shortly!  Lynn designs the most incredible quilts!  If you haven't visited her, be sure to do so! 
I've been a bit scattered  multi-tasking these days.  The weather is beginning to warm up - yesterday it was in the mid-80's so we're gearing up for vegetable planting.  On the sewing front I got Block 6 of my Rosewood Farm BOM done.  I've kept up with each month of this BOM and it feels good!
Yesterday and the day before Mr. Squash got out his trusty tiller and tilled up the vegetable gardens.  Here he is in the raised beds in his cute, tilling outfit!  Check out those great legs, uh, I mean wonderful dirt!  We added a few bags of compost and let the planting begin!
Here he is in the vegetable area on the other side of the yard!  In between our two dwarf apple trees we'll be planting the tomatoes this year.  I just love this Western Redbud tree in the spring.  That is the bark that blooms!  Cool, huh!

I'm still working on my stars blocks, so not much else to show on the sewing front just yet.  I may put a small finished quilt on Vinnie soon, too.  I'll be sure to post my progress!

That's a lot of beans! Congrats to you winner. You have such a nice size yard for gardening. Lots of necessary sunny spots. We have red buds here too...Mr. Creations planted one at the side of our house. I love the opening line from a poem...I think that I shall never see, a thing as pretty as a tree.

Lynn said...

I'm thrilled to have won the contest! Thank you so much Candace and thank you for your blog!

Congratulations to Lynn for the good guess. Your garden (and -er) look great and like summer weather already, and the tree is beautiful.

Linda said...

Sue said...

Congratulations to Lynn !!!! That was alot of beans in that jar! We have been doing the same thing here with this 80 degrees weather we have been having. Working in the yard , preparing our vegetable gardens and staining the deck. I just love this time of year with everything blooming !

Hey sexy...I mean, Mr. Squash. Nice legs! *wink* Planting-wise, you're about three weeks ahead of us.

I wonder if we can grow those trees here. I must ask at our local nursery.

Congrats to Lynn! I was only 1000 off in my guess.

It is sure feeling a bit like spring over and up here as well. Just in time for the wedding on Sat. Congrats to the winner of the Bunny Tails..love her stuff. Happy planting to "Mr. Greenjeans"

Congrats to Lynn! Boy I was way off at my guess.
Oh, can't wait to see what you two plant this year.
I had to cover up some of beds with plastic because of cold weather that came expectantly. I will keep them covered for another day until it gets warmer again. I think I will wait until May next year to plant my summer crops.

Betty Lou said...

Congratulations Lynn on winning the quilt kit and to you Candace for your 400th post.

Mary said...

Can't wait to see Mr.Squash's reward for all his hard work.

Houseelf said...

Congrats to the winner. It looks like you will have some bumper crops to process this year with the new beds.
