I seem to have gone from an anklet craze to a sock craze ... finished the red Butterfly Garden Socks:
I actually went out yesterday looking for a pair of shoes that would best show these lovelies off, but -- as usual -- none of the shoe stores had any cute shoes in a wide width, so I wound up where I always wind up after a trip to the shoe store. Drowning my sorrows in the yarn aisle, cursing the idiot shoe designers who discriminate against women with curvy feet.
The butterfly turned out great:
Wonder Why Girl, for the Tour de Fleece, for Team of Wonder. It's for the TOUR De FLEECE. Honestly. I won't touch it until 2 July ... it's for the TdF, I tell you!
Everything else has been gardening, and wow is it going well! As usual, I made myself the same promise I make every blasted year. I WILL keep the tomatoes in check. I will keep them trimmed, caged, separated, and they will not take over the garden like every other year.
These are only TWO tomato plants, a Juliet and a Sweet 100s. You can see a 12" fence panel at the bottom of the photo, for scale. It's black wire. See it under there? I'm 5'6, and these plants are at least 5' tall.
Between the hot spells, my generous watering habits, and the warm nights, the plants just seem to double in size every few days!
The heirloom tomato in the back left isn't looking good. The leaves are all curled and I don't know what's wrong. I hope I don't have to pull it up, but if I do, I am sure I'll have enough tomatoes without it. I just hate to lose plants.
Have a great week, everyone!
