I am desperately trying to figure out where the month of April went. It really seems to have flown by. But not without something to show for it. I have completed 5 out of 12 of the triangle units for the next section of Dan’s quilt and started on the sixth. As I’ve mentioned before, I am loving the colors.
At one point in the last month, I decided I missed doing applique and went looking for the started panel of the blue and white reverse applique project that has remained unfinished for way too long. I searched high and low and couldn’t find it. When I eventually did locate it, under my sewing table, my husband said that I needed to finish it right away since that was the second time I’d misplaced it since I started that section. Well, I didn’t complete it immediately, but I did get it done this month. I have two more of these blocks to finish before I can piece them together for a wall hanging for my sewing/writing room.
And the visual that really prompted this post is the growth in my garden. I looked back at the picture I posted at the beginning of April and was amazed by the progress since then. I have a nasty tendency to check on the garden multiple times every day. So I lose the perspective of how much progress has been made over time. But as you can see, the vegetables are doing quite well. The peas have some pods that will be ready for harvest before long. We have started harvesting the lettuce. (I chose a “Cut and Come Again” mix of leaf lettuces.) The broccoli is setting and the beans have sprouted. I am hoping that beneath the ground the radishes are beginning to plump up. I also planted the tomato, eggplant and herb seedlings out in their beds today. It is amazing to me that I actually started nearly everything in the garden from seed within the last month and a half! I don’t normally have a green thumb and am certainly a novice gardener in this location. But things are looking good for some yummy veg over the coming months!
