Well, the purple potatoes have been dug up.
I know, dirty counter. Sorry.
They didn’t turn out too big, and a couple of them were liquified in the ground. But, tomorrow the good ones are turning into breakfast potatoes (along with some regular ones I bought to make sure there’s enough to go around.). I’m so excited to see how they taste.
I got my fall seeds in the mail yesterday afternoon. I need to order some kale because I forgot it in the first order, but I am super excited to plant it all next month. I figure mid August is a good time to start it all.
So far my experiments have paid off. I am still getting tomatoes from my grape tomato plants – more than we can eat in a week. My butternut squash is ripening nicely, the Zucchini is dying off, it has a white, powdery residue on it and started drooping and dying off. We got plent of zucchini from them though. My cucumbers vined quite well but didn’t produce a huge number. Just enough for a few small jars of pickle chips. Im pleased with my season though.
Ok, enough about the garden. I am obsessed and you all are probably terribly bored by now.
I bought a couple more dress patterns that are reproductions of 1930’s dresses. I’m headed off to see my parents next week and my mother and I are going to sew and cook up a storm. This is my true summer vacation.
I decided recently that I am going to try to teach myself how to crochet again as well. My husband is skeptical since I have so very many other projects lying around that I haven’t gotten back to yet. I’ll get back to them someday. He just doesn’t understand.
