Yesterday was a busy day – I took my applique block out on the porch in the morning along with my ipad and set up to watch some Gilmore Girls while I relaxed on the porch before the heat and humidity set in – and then because it wasn’t really, really hot in the middle of the afternoon I did it again for awhile. The flower and the little buds/berries? are done and one of the stems – on to the leaves and lets get this block conquered.
Monday night sitting longer than normal I got half of the border finished on Granny’s Got Style. I was working on the second half of the length last night – did I get done? I don’t know as I am writing this to be scheduled before I got busy quilting. I am linking to Sew Fresh Quilts today and My Quilt Infatuation.
I was checking my garden last night as I needed to water and use some miracle grow and here is my big cantaloupe – I have 2 more that I have found but they are quite small yet.
a lot of this mess of vines is from one pumpkin plant – it is growing like crazy and taking over.
And this is the only pumpkin that I have found on this whole thing! and it has barely started – maybe I will still get more growing – this garden seems to be off to a slow start – I have finally noticed growth in the cucumbers but they are slow – I thought I picked up the pickling packet (small cukes) and I read the package last night and it says they get to be 11 inches – oh well – we will get some table cuts from from them and I will make pickles if I get enough going.
Most of the tomato plants down here look about like this – few tomatoes and thin plants but at least I am getting some here and there.
Zucchini will all be ready at the same time – I have about 8 of them growing right now and about 4 yellow squash – I will be passing some on to Melanie and making more bread or something with some of them as well. I read that you can grate zucchini and freeze it – but I wonder if it doesn’t get really mushy – anyone have knowledge of it?
I have several red geraniums in pots – still flowering but the heat is beginning to get to them but on one I have found several tiny white flowers – I didn’t know they did that – I wonder if this is common?
