I took full advantage of yesterday's rainy morning
and worked on some projects that have been floating around my brain.
Of course I had plenty of help...
because, what project is ever complete without at least one kitty monopolizing
Every year I try to find different plant markers for my garden.
This year I decided to make these...
I had lots of bamboo from Dr. Becky's bamboo grove.
The plant names are stenciled on wooden shims.
The shims are lashed onto the bamboo with jute.
(which you can buy in a package, cheap, from any lumber yard)
(you could use paint sticks if you had lots of them as well)
I made enough yesterday to place where I had already planted seeds.
(By the way, I will be planting carrots, beets and radishes behind the green trellis fencing,
as sugar peas do well when planted with these root veggies.)
Several varieties of onions and lettuce....
Another box has radishes that were planted as well.
I'll be making more markers as I plant more seeds in the coming weeks.
Of course, everyone was curious as to what I was doing.
By the time I stuck the finished markers in the ground,
the rain began again.
We are to have a fair amount of rain this week.
Sadly, that will delay gardening and sheep shearing.
Not a problem... there are plenty of other projects to work on instead.
I also was able to finish March's Loops Club project.
The dark blue stripes in this are silk with tiny seeds and sequins in it.
The light blue is cashmere and merino.
It will be the perfect light wrap for Spring.
