Zucchini is done!


img_5290Since tomorrow is the day to post our knitting this week, it is time to show that some progress has been made.  These were started mid August, so my goal will be to finish them by the end of September.   Since I’m on the foot, I should be able to achieve that (pending interruptions in the schedule)

This is what I wrote yesterday.   “So tomorrow’s goals are to finish weeding the hoop house, make bread, pick apples, and finish the quilt and to make applesauce” .  So who thinks that actually happened?       Instead, this is what happened.

 Tonight I get to crawl into nice clean sheets to dream about the new adventures awaiting me tomorrow.

Then we picked corn, green beans, beets, and carrots with which to play tomorrow.  And we must not forget to pick the apples before the raccoons and deer get to them.
