In the Garden

This is from the Grape Tomato in the hanging basket in my deck.



On the left Squash and Zucchini

Just a few pictures of my garden. I have two types going on this year. Tomato's in containers and of course in the ground. This year after the garden was tilled I put down weed control plastic and so far so good the weeds are not as bad. The only problem now is no rain. I think almost two weekends ago it rained for maybe 10 minutes. My Mother called me today she is visiting her Sister and Mother in Candor (Montgomery Co) only 30 minutes away and she asked if it had rained I told her no rain and she told me they got rain and a thunderstorm. I can do without the thuderstorm but I wish it had rained. I had to water the garden tonight it took about an hour. It's not a large garden but I am trying not to let the water just run or use sprinklers to save water. I have lots of blooms on everything and a two cucumbers on a vine, I will post a picture of the little cucumber tomorrow I need to clear some pictures from my camera.

Knit & Purl Hearts

Just another dish cloth. #9 Knit & Purl Hearts from #3253 Leisure Arts dishcloths from the heart, by Evelyn A Clark. The materials needed for the project 100% Cotton Worsted Weight Yarn and size 8(5.00 mm) or size needed for gauge straight needles. I used size 7(4.5 mm) straight needles because I did not read the materials needed part before I started the dish cloth. My yarn color of choice Grape, yarn choice Lily The Original Sugar' n Creme. Well on to the next dish cloth.

I finished 2 dishcloths Sunday. One all I needed to do was weave my ends. The second I finished the last 11 row and weaved the ends. I found both patterns on Ravelry. Two of the members posted pictures of their dish cloths and access to free patterns on their blogs. The first cloth Two Hearts as One Dishcloth, by Cathy Waldie I used the Lily Sugar ' n Cream in Hot Pink, love the color. The second A Valentine Surprise by Kris I used Peaches & Creme in Yellow, love this color too its nice a bright. My next dishcloth I might start tonight is from Leisure Arts dishcloths FROM THE HEART, By Evelyn A. Clark Pattern #9 Knit & Purl Hearts after this I plan to force myself to knit a cloth with YO(yarn over) and SSK(slip,slip,knit) after knitting for a year I think it is time.

The garden

Well what a difference a few weeks makes when it comes to gardens. I am talking about my container garden. The grape tomato's I planted in hanging baskets looks great It really growing and now I have blooms on the plants. The patio tomato is doing well too, and my cucumber growing and blooming. I was hoping for a nice long rain this weekend but we did not get a nice long rain. Yesterday we got a short light rain and I mean short rain. So I think I am going to be forced to water later on today when it cools off it is to hot at the moment. My current knitting project a dish cloth of course. I found the pattern on Ravelry one of the members wrote the pattern. It is on her blog.
