7 is a good number

In the blink of an eye (or so it seemed) more artichokes are ready. They're small and tender. Get the steamer going!


7 Artichokes

I'm trying not to get too excited, but the Bartlett pears look good. Last year we had high hopes and they all fell off. Fingers crossed.

The first of many

They don't look like they all came from the same seed packet. Where'd that globe-y guy in the back come from?

Let's eat!

Artichokes are popping up like crazy. We counted 6 on one plant! The good thing is they're not going to be ready to eat all at once, but it won't be long before we have them a few times a week.

This one is ready to be picked.


Ready for the pot

These need a little more time in the sun.

Let's not forget about the apricots. I'm sure the squirrels haven't.

Crackle Sac 2

I finished the second Crackle Sac today. The weaving was actually finished 7 weeks ago. I don't know why I waited so long to sew the lining and put it all together, but it's done now. The 3rd is on the loom with only 2 pattern repeats to go. At this rate, it'll be finished this summer.
