Not Much Gardening Going on Around Here....

In the garden, things are pretty much either dead, waiting to die or biding their time before they produce like the broccoli, onions, garlic and carrots. There were, however, a few surprises. I thought the recent three days of frost in a row would have gotten all of the green beans left, but it only nailed a few and I picked a whole bowl on Sunday which was pleasantly unexpected. Right now, I'm just twiddling my thumbs and waiting for the mood to strike me to clean up the dead and dying vines.

Right now, what's keeping me busy is making keychains! We got that order in for just under 60 keychains for a church youth group so I've been sewing like a crazy tonight. I've gotten 15 done today so depending on the amount of other orders we receive this week, I should get them done in time to ship out Monday. *sigh* it's the first time I haven't shipped out within 24 hours, but I think it's understandable in this case. Here's the ones I did tonight:

And here's what I found when I came downstairs Sunday night. They were like three peas in a pod!
It was very cute.

Hopefully the broccoli will sprout heads soon and we can get back to gardening! The morning comes early. Sweet gardening dreams.


  1. That is very cute!!! And the keychains look great.

  2. I love the picture of the 3 peas in a pod!! Sounds like the key chains are keeping you busy!! YEAH!

  3. Congrats on the large order of the keychains!

  4. I'm sure the broccoli will form heads pretty soon - definitely withing the next couple of weeks. Tell the man you need a little hoophouse - and also that he needs a lollipop, dangit! Ha!

  5. Mine is the same - bean vines are still up, along with some dead tomato plants in pots, broccoli and peas just beginning to go into production mode. I better get out there soon or everyone will get tired of knitting and learning to sew posts LOL!
