Can you stand another garden update? There will be more knitting soon, I promise: I have only two more rounds on the white blob before the always exciting crochet cast-off (which alone could take years). I have beads to show you, but I've been too lazy to take pictures. I'm also looking for clasp ideas for the wire beaded weaving. My first trip to the House of Sin didn't go well (it didn't seem like there were very many options), so I am going to continue looking.
So, instead? Wee watermelon:
I hope everyone likes watermelon because we have 6 plants. I can't help but think we'll be sneaking the things onto our neighbors porches and running.
Sorry for the crummy picture. This should turn red someday, the plants are already doing better than the ones from last year, so I have high hopes.
The tomatoes I raised from seeds are doing very well (the top photo is Amish Paste, the bottom is Beefsteak).
The green bean plants are recovering.
But the cucumber plants were attacked. I saw last night that this plant has flowers, but the last thing a plant needs in mid-July is to be concentrating on new growth when it should be putting its energy into vegetable production.
Oh look! There goes a culprit now. Little shit isn't even afraid of us!
Please send rain.
