What have I been up to?


Posted at 26 Jun 2010 10:50:44 AM

What have I been doing with myself lately?

There has been a little of this...



And a bit of this...



And, thanks to Quantum Tea, I've been learning to do this...



(There's some of this for me as a reward:)



Beyond that, there's been a whole lot of small-project knitting going on. I've sort of burned myself out on complicated lace in the last few weeks, so I've been making tiny baby things for my SIL (no pictures; it would spoil the surprise). After 1 and a half tshirts, three pairs of booties and a planned kimono, I think I'm just about ready to tackle some lace again :)

Aww, it's cute! ;)

I'm ahead of myself, really. I still need to dump some fertilizer/peat moss into the garden and turn up the soil a bit before I can plant those guys!

I took a different approach with the garden this year...

I'm excited to see how much of a difference it makes. I didn't invest much (sub $300) and just built it over top of the existing 12'x16' garden. This is what it takes to get tomatoes ripe in Halifax, it seems.

Woah, that's awesome! And seriously hardcore :P

From what I've read online, it'll probably make a significant difference. Take lots of pictures!

It's been raining all weekend (had an actual tornado yesterday, of all the absurd things...) so I haven't gotten much done. I'll be away next weend so hopefully the weather breaks and I can get the seedlings in the ground this week.

Mostly it's tomatoes, eggplant, bell pepper and poblano pepper. I've given up on peas/vine beans - either they don't grow well here, or I don't pay enough attention and they get burned by the sun. I'm excited for eggplant parm and chile rellenos!
