When will I get a ripe tomato? I am so anxious. My neighbor has some. She even shared a couple with me. The nearby greenhouse gave everyone who bought a flat of plants a tomato plant. I got two. The other one (no pic) got frosted out a week after I got it but amazing, it also came back and has grown like mad. It has dense foliage and has some tomatoes but this one is just full of green tomatoes. I think there are about 14 on this one plant.
I worked on this pond area yesterday and got the weeds out and many things trimmed back. I have more areas that need attention but it is so nice to have this area cleaned up and looking good. I see this area from my front porch.
I tried to take a pic of my fungy quilt flimsy out on my clothes line but the wind is blowing too hard. Here it is pinned over a window so messes up the color. I hope to get a good pic of its true colors soon. It is very bright and part of the yellow has a mustard tone. I tried a red eye stop border but preferred this black one. I really do like how it turned out. I needed to go near JoAnn's on Friday so I stopped in and bought some poly batting. I usually use cotton on my full sized quilts but I figure this one will be washed frequently so I wanted the poly. I didn't have a discount coupon but the batting was 40% off anyway. I bought some of an inexpensive one and also some that is fire resistant. Has anyone ever used that? I plan to some how quilt it on my sewing machine. When finished, this quilt will be about 44 by 60 inches and will make a great cover up when sitting in a chair. I haven't named it yet. Yesterday I pulled fabric to start another one. Stay tuned.
