Not much in the sewing department yesterday. Garden works instead. I picked the peas and pulled out the plants and will not bother with them again – I had such trouble with aphids that no matter how soapy water I sprayed on them they kept coming back and all I have to show for it is about a cup of shelled peas! I pulled the plants out and threw them far from the garden. There were little green aphids all over the place – then I picked the green beans that were ready and will pick again in a couple days – doesn’t look like I will get much out of these either – I think next year if we are home for the summer I will go with more tomato plants instead. I have of my sweet potatoes planted and as soon as I pull out the green bean plants I will put the rest of the sweet potatoes in there. One day I will have to admit that I am not much of a vegetable gardener and stick with the herbs & plant flowers and tomatoes and potatoes/sweet potatoes instead – I always have luck with the potatoes! The tomato plants even seem smaller than usual this year – too much rain perhaps.
Grass was cut, exercise done. Spearmint cut and in the dehydrator for winters tea. The other mints do not seem to be growing near as fast as this one has. I sat outside for awhile in the afternoon and evening and have two little hexies to show for my time! Maybe more in the sewing area today? Not sure – Mike is off for five days and I don’t know how much I will be helping him with the sewing room – depends on if I am in the way or actually helping LOL.

EDITED: 6:38 AM I just realized my comments are not going to my email once again and saw I had comments from yesterday I never saw and everything that came in this morning also – I will start to answer from the blog once again
