working in the garden

Working in the garden every day now that the weather has turned lovely.
Our vegetable garden has been in now three weeks and already the
green onions are ready to pick.

I put in tomatoes,peas,corn,carrots,swisschard,spinach,leaks,sweet onions,basil,
egg plant,sweet peppers,zuccini,cucunbers,chives, pumpkins and sunflowers.
That should keep us going for awhile.

Today my grandaughter was over and we made a garden man.

While visiting Debbie @ Confessions of a Plate Addict she had a great tutorial ,
on how to make a garden man.

So we gathered my pots, twine, corks,and a long stick and began to make
a garden man.
We added some plants from the garden for his hair.
We think he turned out just great.

We had time to clean out the pond since the birds have been busy
taking baths.

If you look closely you can see the fish.
Have a great week!
until next time, Happy Gardening!

Antiquing for the first time this season

Actually it was Saturday . Such a beautiful day in the neighborhood.. Soooo
we decided to go on a road trip. Out came the 49 for the first time this year.
We drove 1 1/2 hours and ended up here. Queensville Antiques. 16,000 sq ft of
antiques and collectables.
I was on the hunt for white ironstone. Jugs, plates etc. To add to my collection.
Upon entering you see lots of eye candy.

After walking for 2 1/2 hours we headed for home. Can you believe it. EMPTY HANDED.
Oh well we had a great day out and a good spin in the old 49 Ford p/u.

If you are wondering about my labels being white weathered hutch drop by my other blog.

until next time,
