After our almost move back to Ohio it was a little late to get into gardening. It was the time it took to unpack and re-setup our household that got in the way of any hope of a Spring garden. We did a really good job of reorganizing and having the house start to look familiar again, but weeds and heat seemed to get out of hand. Well the end of July is when it is time to put in your Fall tomatoes. Getting into pulling weeds was not a fun thought... but I knew I had to get started, so I gave it a good shot this past week. Still a bit to go, but you can actually walk between the beds now. The weeds in the back were so high you couldn't see the fence on the other side. We bought some good compost to amend the soil with and a few tomato plants... maybe by the end of the week they can be planted in one of the beds.
We actually sold my Tin Lizzie, so I am not able to get any quilting done right now, but I am trying to organize the quilts I have done that have been waiting to get quilted. I will have lots ready to get going on that new machine when it arrives. The dinosaur quilt will be among those I get to first... of course it won't be the very first as it takes a couple quilts to get used to a new setup and wouldn't want to mess up on this special quilt. This isn't a very good picture, but it does show the progress.
Boston and Shorty are enjoying the comforts of the deck.
