A Hexie Flower for June and Some Garden Produce

I put together another flower block for June from the Hexie Blog BOM.   Now it has a straight stem and I am happy with it.

I am going to start appliqueing these blocks onto background fabrics so that I don't get too far behind.  It was also suggested, by Julia, that we start making the sashing.  That way it won't be too overwhelming at the end, when all the blocks are done and it is time to put the quilt together.  So that is what I am working on now..

We had a few rainy days at the beginning of this week.  I did not go outside to work in the garden while it rained, but when the sun came out again, I went out to inspect my crops. That's when I discovered that many of my zucchinis were ready to pick.  I also picked a few cherry tomatoes. (Sorry no pics. I ate them straight off the vines.) They are so delicious!

The largest zucchini is about 8 inches long.  I ate the smallest one raw dipped in a spinach dip. That was the best lunch I have had in a long time!
