it's all about the green- inside AND out!

 
 it seems silly to even mention that it was a busy week in the gardens... we planted tomatoes (300 Roma), 70+ hot peppers, sweet corn, sweet potatoes, 150 late cabbages, hydroponic lettuce and other stuff I can't remember...(it all blurs together after awhile!)


there were a couple evenings that I was able to find some time and energy to sew upstairs, and I finished my 9 patches- AND even ironed them!


I also finished numerous strip sets for my zig zag quilt, and even got them pressed. I was too tired to get them cut into the 4½" sections, so will work on that this weekend. click on over to Angela's to see the last week of greens. so much inspiration in one place!

Goodness me! That is a huge amount of planting. Do you sell produce commercially?
Very pretty green blocks. It will look great in all the colours of the rainbow.

What a busy week! I was tuckered out after cleaning up the flower beds and planting some annuals. Nice secondary patterns evolving with your 9 patch arrangement.

That's a lot of planting! I'm tired just thinking about it. Hopefully you will have some good crops for Farmer's Market later on. And what a cute 9p layout.

I'm blog hopping through the greens right now. With all the planting you've done, I'm impressed that you found time for sewing. That must be some garden!

That's a LOT of gardening! Stitching may truly be on the back burner for a while . . .
