Pardon me while I check out my feet - just making sure I haven't developed webbing between my toes! Gosh it is wet...and 96% humidity this a.m. More of the same through Thursday and then I think Friday is supposed to be sunny and 79 or so.
The garden has been exploding with sugar snap peas. Fletch is picking gallon bags daily! The other night we had our first strawberry (yes, singular - it was large enough that we could split it) and cherry tomatoes should be ready to pick any day. Onions and potatoes are growing quickly as well.
I've also noticed some weird things garden-wise. First up one of our burning bushes (we have 3) is already turning red! Second, our trumpet vine is already blooming...and there are a lot of blooms. Usually that doesn't happen till July. Hopefully we will see the hummingbirds soon. Last, we are growing mushrooms EVERYWHERE. Colin gave me a planter box with white icicle radish seeds (one of my favorite radishes) planted in it for Mother's Day. The radishes are not doing so well, but the spores? Taking off!
Last night those little 'shrooms were tiny and close to the dirt. This morning they are standing several inches high!
On the other hand, knitting is going well. I'm staying loyal to the socks I am making for Fletch and not knitting on anything else. Monday I finished up the first sock at lunch and started #2 that evening. Here's where I'm at right now:
Difficult to get a good picture on this grey day, so it is hard to see the pattern. The finished sock also looks weirdly huge in this photo - lol. But...I had Fletch try it on Monday night and it fits perfectly!
I'm excited and looking forward to trying something new! The latest MDK Field Guide is all about socks - cuff down, toe up and lots of different patterns. I am Determined to learn how to knit socks toe up. The provisional cast on may throw me for a loop, but I will give it a try once these are off the needles.
Linking up with Kat on this Unraveled Wednesday. Head on over to her blog to see what she and others are making and reading.
