While I don't have much to show you in terms of sewing, I do have some shots of my garden. That's the 'green' part of this post. Or did you think it was my flu-like symptoms? Well, maybe.
On Sunday I spotted this zucchini. It is my first zucchini for this year! I ate it raw, in a salad. Delicious!
This morning I went out to water my pots and hanging baskets. It's amazing how everything suffers when I don't feel well and neglect things for a day or two. I noticed that my zucchini plant has been busy. That little zucchini in the photo above had grown into the zucchini on the left in this photo. And there were two more that needed to be picked. I guess there is going to be some zucchini bread in my future!
My tomato plants are looking good too. I have so many green tomatoes already! Here's an example. The plants are huge too. Much bigger than usual for this time of year.
I did manage to prep a few more hexagons for my I Spy quilt. I decided to work on this one this week because several people have offered to send me some novelty squares if I don't have enough.
What constitutes a "Heatwave" in Toronto? At least three consecutive days with temperatures of 32C and nights with temps staying above 20C. This current heatwave will continue for the next few days and maybe even longer. A thunder storm is brewing. That will be nice. Maybe I won't have to water my garden for a day or so.
