I can hardly keep from posting pictures every day from my garden, I just find it so amazing. I don't know if this wonder will last me all the rest of my life but it seems like I have more every year I garden. BFJ has finally gotten the gardening bug this year, maybe it is because he built the fence and is more invested than he has previously been. Last night he told me, "This vine was here yesterday, and now it's here. It's grown at least a foot!!"
One plant that I've been watching daily is this sunflower. I planted several sunflower seeds, from at least two different packets, and I have three. (Why don't they all grow?) I knew this one was going to be red because the spines on all the leaves are purplish instead of green. It's finally blooming!
And here are two nuts. Okay, not actually nuts, but acorn squash.
When I was selecting squash plants for the garden, this was BFJ's request. These two are surprisingly heavy, I wish I had a scale so I could measure them. We are going to be roasting them!
And now for the giveaway...
Thank you, all of you who've read my blog, shared my joys and some of my sorrows, and followed along my crafting and domestic journey! Last month, I asked Christie of TinCup Arts if she would allow me to share some of her delicious Yarn Lover's Lotion, and she said yes.
SO, if you're interested, I will select one random winner from the comments left on this post between now and next Wednesday, August 18th, to receive some Yarn Lover's Lotion and other goodies of my choosing. Just tell me this: what do you enjoy reading about the most on my blog? Is it the gardening? The knitting? The sparse quilting content? Maybe you just think I'm a funny writer. Or perhaps you stop by for my gorgeous photography! I'm curious to know what it is that makes you stop by.
Oh, and and remember, if you post anonymously, I won't be able to track you down!
