Knitting production has not been impressive lately; slogging along on the Poetry In Stitches Leaf Sweater and a pair of STR socks…

More interesting and productive is DH’s garden; we enjoy dinners including garden fresh something everyday.

basil, yummmm, we are wallowing in basil decadence lately

cardoons, these are past eating, but awfully photogenic

they look like some sort of medieval torture vegetable

or the something you’d make bad children eat

it’s actually the stalks we eat early in the season,
but Mr. Bumblebee was thoroughly enjoying the bloom

wall of scarlet runner beans,
we’ll enjoy these all winter in fantastic cassoulet DH creates

there are peas in among the beans,
I enjoy eating these right off the vine

the backside of the bean wall is all cilantro


brussel sprouts

there they are, tiny brussel sprouts

blueberries, lots of blueberries, handfuls on cereal every morning 🙂

volunteer tomatillas, they planted themselves out of the compost!

some sort of squash

I love these violets, they pop up all over our yard, including in the vegetable garden and we take care not to step on them

artichokes as pretty as tasty

volunteer chamomile

handy chives

more violets coming through the cracks in the patio,
along with some oregano, which also
pops up all over our yard!

There’s lots more, tomatoes, lettuce, leeks, cucumber, peppers, strawberries, carrots, pumpkins, and the occasional stray potato.

    Wow, those are some amazing garden pictures!!! Though…I kept hoping to find a stray skein of yarn or a partially knitted sock amongst the foliage someplace… 🙂
