Remember me talking about my friend who gave me the old table? Well, he gave me a box of plastic bowls and in the bottom of it I found these.
I know their not old but I figure I can scuff them up a bit.
Wendell and I worked out in the yard yesterday and decided to take a quick look this morning to see how everything looked. I think I mentioned that we had some grapes growing along the fence, didn't I? Well, look! They are getting little grapes! Wendell may be able to try his hand at some wine yet!
The garden has really been over taken with grass. Surprisingly though, everything but the eggplant seems to have survived. We wanted to till up the space between everything but the tiller is giving Wendell a lot of problems. We ended up mowing and weedeating then putting a little mulch around the plants. Hopefully it will help.
We have a total of nine tomato plants out there. Half of them are romas. I am hoping to use them for making sauce. I was really surprised to see a lot of little tomatoes on the vine already.
Before the tiller 'crapped out', Wendell did get a little spot for the cucumbers, watermelon and canteloup plants. I couldn't keep Sasha out of the dirt. When she thought we weren't looking she was rolling in the dirt.
Today I hope to get my herbs planted. I can't wait to be able to use my own herbs for cooking.
I also got a pleasant surprise this morning. The mail lady dropped off a package from Nebraska. It was from my friend Cindy at 'My Doggie and Me' . I met Cindy at the Sewforum a few years ago. She is the one who got me into doing machine embroidery. Now she has her own shop on Artfire making wonderful things for dogs and cats.
What was the surprise??? This box, filled with a 100 bottles of paint! She knows I love to paint and she knew I would appreciate all the beautiful colors.
