It was a gorgeous day today! Really gorgeous. More on that later…
First, I finished my crumb bucket hat this evening after our walk. And it’s pretty fun!
And it all went together much more easily that I anticipated it would. I’m pretty surprised by that.
Unfortunately, it didn’t use up very much of the scrap pile I’ve generated in the last few weeks of crumb piecing. So there is some good opportunity there.
Here’s some eye candy.
My yard and lawn maintenance guys came today and mowed and did their weekly clean up. They are new to me this summer and I’m really happy with the job they’re doing. After they left I stood in the back yard just enjoying how nice it looks.
So while I was out there I did a little video tour of my yard.
Everything is looking so good this spring. It’s amazing what 30 or 40 inches of rain will do!!!
But there was no rain today. I pulled the cover off my strawberries to see what was going on in there and I spotted this first red berry. It still needs a few more days to ripen before I eat it. I will eat it fresh and warm right off the plant!
There are quite a few more berries in there too! These are ever bearing plants so I’m hoping for a nice generous crop.
I have the berries under cloth to keep the squirrels and birds out.
My lettuce is looking really good too. A few more days of sunshine and warmer temps and it will be ready for a salad!
I have another six pack to plant right down the middle of those two rows of lettuce. I’ll do that tomorrow night.
I have four tomato plants in a large stock tank. I plan to put a couple of pepper plants in there too.
All four tomato plants have blooms on them. The are growing nicely so far, even with our cool and wet spring.
While I was out there I tossed the ball for the boys for a while. Here’s Rico really going for it!
He looks like his back feet are on the ground, but he’s actually about four feet in the air! Well, four feet as in 48 inches and all of his four feet!
Bender loves to play fetch, but he’s not quite as enthusiastic as Rico, mostly because of his drugs.
That photo gives you a pretty good view of the house from the back yard. I’m pretty lucky to have such a place to live! My boys love it too.
I’m planning to get out and play some pickleball tomorrow night. It looks like the weather will be perfect for it.
