When it turned cold two days ago, it was a shock to all of us. It remains chilly, in the 40’s, and very rainy. We’ve had hardly any rain all summer and now when the farmers don’t need it or want it, we get rain. Many are trying to chop sileage which can’t be done in the rain. I don’t mean to sound ungrateful – I know our lawns need it but how important is a lawn compared to a crop? Not very.
When I moved plants into the house on Monday I walked over 11,000 steps that day alone! I repotted many – here’s one that was totally potbound. I’m surprised and grateful that the pot didn’t break.
These big plants become a problem that all people with a green thumb end up with – plants grow too large to move or find a place for. When the light is better I’m going to take pictures of all my plants to post here on the blog.
Remember all those tomatoes? We’ve been eating a lot of salad like this along with BLTs and cornbread salad.
Here are the Dirty Dozen quilts for today:
I’ll bet if it weren’t raining these guys would have taken off – they are just too big for the nest any more!
No quilts to show you – I’m sorry. Both of us are working on projects to present but neither of us are finished. I could see how much you enjoyed seeing all of Julie’s quilts! Hang on, we’ll get there!
