The garden is growing like gangbusters. I'm finally getting to eat some of the fruits (or vegetables) of my labor.

carrot, dill, green beans, sugar snap peas, cilantro, and chives

I turned a handful of veggies and herbs into a delicious meal for friends. While I did purchase the main ingredients, something from the garden made it into each dish! Like my teeny tiny carrot? I'll have to till the soil deeper if I grow them again - they hit the clay and stopped growing down, just got fat.

I'm also have a nice crop of knit and crochet items these days :) I bought a whole bunch of worsted weight cotton yarn and have enjoyed making a few kitchen items. I plan to sell these and a lot more in September in a community event my friend's non-profit is putting together.

What are you harvesting this summer?


  1. Everything looks delish!!! I'm sorry...but I have to laugh at your little stumpy carrot. It's adorable. lol.'s short and ME! haha

    Love ya girl!!! xoxo

  2. I ended up with very ugly carrots last year, too- and probably will again this year, since I didn't do anything special to the soil. Everything looks great- I'm glad the herbs survived!

  3. Wow, you've been busy. I never get over how pretty that Vineyard dishcloth is everytime I see it.

    Your veggies look awesome!

  4. I love all your tawashi--especially the fishie--great photos too!
