Per my mom's request, here's a shot of my front garden, happily mulched and planted:
The potato boxes are now planted with black beans. There won't be enough for more than a meal but I wanted to play a little. The three pots next to the potato boxes have green beans. The far raised bed holds the zucchini and the closer bed now has the 4 grape tomatoes, an Ugly tomato, the basil my sister gave me and 2 of the Sweet Chocolate peppers. I need/want to pick up a bale of straw both to mulch the veggies beds and to feed the compost bin. I really don't want to do any weeding this summer.
I did a little spinning last weekend but never got around to showing the pics:
I also started spinning some silk hankies over the weekend. It's slow going because opening up the hankies is a bit tough on the hands. Silk is an extremely strong fiber and the constant pulling on my fingers has left them pretty sore. So, the spinning will be slow until I build up some calluses. Pictures will be coming as soon as I have something to show
