i'm hoping i don't find it too difficult to knit with my new-found green thumbs.
i know some knitters who also like to grow stuff. we got together and made it a group effort. in my back yard. meet the garden girls: heather and trista.
i had to include this shot. see little fatboy in the back there?
it's pretty exciting. a few weeks ago we had a planning meeting to plot out the space and list everything each of us wanted to grow. the next time we got together was our first work day. the three of us cut and built all the beds for our garden. we're going to recycle some old fencing to keep the dogs out and i'm going to build a cold frame with connected compost bin. i've even been looking at chicken coops. so if you ever run short on fresh, brown eggs, i'm your girl.
damn. i'm going to be living right off the land! kinda cool. :)
so if you need me this summer, i'll be in my chair, knitting, as the garden grows.
