Cool and rainy weekend here- but veg are still going strong in the hoophouse
I’m really excited about the pretty little melon plants with all their flowers
and we’ve already got a couple of little cukes shaping up!
and a few tiny tomatoes
And after a fresh coat of oil courtesy of The Man, the potting bench is positively glowing
And out in the garden, peonies are about ready to pop
In sheep and wool news, I finally got the last of Felix sheared the other day (yay!), so he’s looking much more respectable now. Wasn’t able to get a good post-haircut pic yet, but I have just finished up about 440 yards of fingering weight Felix 2 ply that I think he’d be pleased with
And as I have quite a bit of yarn and other woolen goods accumulated, I’m thinking I will participate in the Alger Sunday market this summer, maybe just twice a month(?) and see how it goes. First day is July 11. if you’re in the area, stop by and say hi!
Your veggies are way ahead of ours and look great! The Felix yarn is gorgeous of course. I may consider the Alger Market as well. Fiber Fusion is expensive and quite a comMitment.
Thanks Donna- much further ahead garden-wise than I would normally be. working from home has really given me a leg up this year. Would be cool to se you at the Alger market! If you want the contact info of the coordinator, just let me know-
That Market looks like a GREAT concept! Everything in the hoop house looks so good; definitely farther along than my garden.
thanks Michelle- yeah, I’m so pleased about how the veggies are coming along. We’re still battling the voles, but at least I haven’t lost any plants to them yet.
