It’s been a difficult day in the garden… I’m really worried that our tomatoes have blight, which would probably mean the loss of the entire crop. Please keep your fingers crossed – planting and growing tomatoes is a lot of hard work, but more importantly, I would be so so sad if we lost all that delicious potential harvest….
On the upside, today I picked my first ever harvest of carrots. Don’t they look nice! We’ve already eaten them in a scrummy vegetable soup which also contained home-grown courgettes, turnip greens and herbs, so I guess I shouldn’t complain too much (oh, but my lovely tomatoes…!).
Meanwhile, I’ve been making more pincushions… I’m writing a tutorial on how to hand-sew a pincushion like this little cutie:
Just to whet your appetite, on Monday I’ll publish the tutorial, start a giveaway to win one of my pincushions, AND a 10% discount code for the brilliant Felted Rainbow on Folksy. Just how will you get through the weekend???
