In other gardening news, I made a few Farmer's Wife blocks.
I started this little project a year ago, when I joined this QAL. I mean, really, how hard can it be, making 2 little 6" blocks a week for one year. Not hard, really. Just, I don't know. I think I've learned that I'm not good at "a thing a day" type activities. I'm more apt to power through 8-10 at a time. Or maybe I need to do the 21 days in a row to make it a habit thing. So far, I have maybe a dozen of these little guys. Will I make all 100+ blocks? We'll see. I do enjoy making them, and revisiting some favorite scraps. I'm just not going to put a time line on it.
And now, on to the "real" garden. Things are, eh. The tomatoes and onions are doing great. But my cucumbers and zucchini were a complete fail. I mean, really, who can't grow zucchini? I had to dig up the old plants (which never took hold) and start anew. And then the bunnies came. Goodbye peppers. Hello fence.
If you have any awesome gardening tips, please share. Clearly I need them!
