First I have to say a special thank you to Amber! She fed my yarn diet with a belated birthday present of sock yarn.
I have heard the infamous Brenda Dayne mention Colinette yarn many a time, but have never seen it in person. This is JitterBug 100% merino sock yarn in the Duck colorway. It's beautiful Amber! I will find a great use for it, and until I do, I will just fondle it.
I am also proud to give the first peek at our vegetable garden. Brian and I came home yesterday and shrieked when we saw how so many seedlings had popped out in our absence! All of the lettuces, beans, broccoli, squash, and cucumber are sprouting. The peas still remain to be seen. The tomatoes and peppers are still thriving. The manuer compost seems to be doing it's job! So far, the chicken wire has been efficient at keeping the squirrels away. At some point we'll have to remove it from the tomatoes to give them room to grow, but we'll wait as long as possible.
I'm dreaming of fresh tomatoes and basil with sliced mozarella and olive oil drizzled over top. What could be more delicious on a hot summer day?
