If you are thinking about making this sweater and have access to Ravelry, go take a look at Susan's notes first. Pretty much what bugged her bugged me, especially not having a good selvage edge on the lace to mattress stitch the side seams....but it's a free pattern and over all a wonderful one to knit!
I love this picture of Ash pretending to take a shower underneath the flower....silly grrl!
Speaking of teachers.......Ash has decided to pursue a career in Education....so where as I'm no "teach", someday soon, Ashley will be! Yay Ash!
The days this week have just been outstanding! Warm sunny days, followed by cool, dry evenings. Perfection!
Tonight we are expecting our first hard frost, so we covered up the herbs and veggies I wanted to save, along with my side flower gardens. The covered beds look like little ghosts and goblins and scared the crap out of Maggie when she just went out...snicker.
If you look at this bowl of tomatoes, you can see that on most of the tomatoes, where the stem is, the tomato is quite yellowish orange instead of red.
The tomatoes came off of the vines themselves and I have let them sit on the counter for more than a week, with no change in the color, even though the red part of the tomato seems very ripe. What's up with this?
Because I literally have scads of them in the kitchen, and not wanting them to be feasting material for the fruit flies that seem to appear from nowhere, I sliced off the seemingly unripe portion, tossed them in olive oil, salt and pepper and gave them a good roasting. I'm not a real lover of tomatoes, so I have no clue if they are good or bad. Ash says the ripe part tastes good, so I am guessing that these roasted tomatoes that I froze will be ok....at least I hope that they will.
I still have scads more however and they all look the same on the top. I have never grown Juliet's before, but the pictures I have seen, don't look like mine :(
Especially when you are a Woolen Rabbit!
