Green














Two new patterns I've been working on. The first one needs to have the strap redone, two is one too many. The other one may well be okay. I need to test carry it a couple more times.









Everything else is from the garden - a bit of lichen found on a bush that isn't doing so well.












Various herbs, mostly basil and rosemary.











One of the citrus trees in bloom - I think it's the orange tree, although it could be the grapefruit. The lemons and limes aren't doing quite as well.














And the two varieties of artichokes we're growing. I think we'll have another bumper crop, just like the last two springs. Not quite that many artichokes in the fall crop.

I spent a bit of time this week planting and putting out seeds. Let's hope I'll have sweetpeas (flowers, not veggies) again this year. Last year, they refused to even sprout, very disappointing. This year, I'm trying green beans and lettuce for the first time. We'll see how that goes.

A very green post! What do you do with the extra artichokes?
