At last, the garden is planted! I believe we managed to stick seeds or starts into every available nook and cranny of the backyard. That translates to: asparagus, tomatoes (2 each of cherry and slicing varieties), yukon gold potatoes, artichokes (1 purple, 2 green globe), sugar snap peas, bush beans, mesclun salad lettuce mix, romaine lettuce, spinach, russian kale, carrots, shallots, scallions, walla walla onions, garlic (3 varieties), strawberries (4+ varieties), raspberries, an apple tree, blueberries (3 varieties), hops (3 varieties), zuchini, peppers (2 varieties), broccoli, cucumbers, and of course, the herb garden (mint, thyme, rosemary, sage, lavendar, oregano and basil). Also, sunflowers and nasturtiums.

And now hear this. I, Andrea, hereby relinquish all attempts at growing cilantro. Apparently it just isn't in the stars for me, and I fear adverse mental effects should I continue to attempt it. I'll stick to tomatoes, which seem to work OK for me.


The Huge Log Cabin quilt and matching pillow shams are done, and safely in the hands of their new owners.


It's been warm enough for Finn to take up lying in the coolest part of the house and do a little swimming...


We went to the Padres vs. Mariners game (the Pads won that game, but lost the subsequent two)


Isabella's quilt is quilted (but not yet bound)...

Congrats on your grade! Can't tell much from the photo of your project but, knowing you, I'm sure it was superior work!
The quilts are beautiful and the recipients are most fortunate!
