Square Foot Gardening

 This could also be titled, "My Husband has lost his Freaking mind." He does not know how to do anything small. It's always GO BIG or do nothing at all. There are 6 beds measuring 4 feet by 5 feet plus a row of beds along the fence and in between each big bed. They are marked off into 1 foot squares. Each square can hold up to 6 plants depending on what it is.....allegedly. Tomatoes get their own squares, but spinach gets 9 plants for one square. 2 cukes gets 1 square...I don't know how that is possible....they spread all over the place. I really think its going to LOOK LIKE A FREAKING JUNGLE by August. Any way, Chuck swears he has it all under control. We shall see.

Chuck is pretty awesome, so it just may work ;)

The Square Foot Gardening Bible.

Chuck's been toting it everywhere with him. Mel Bartholomew is his new BFF. I wonder if Mel knows this.....

I'll keep you posted on the progress thruout the summer.

Baby Love. Michelle and Isabelle.

This is my friend Michelle and her beautiful (and fourth!) daughter, Isabelle. Michelle posted this pic on Facebook and I immediately thought it would make an awesome abstracty art quilt. I think it turned out pretty good.

Oh, and BTW, its yours, Michelle, if you want it :)

Words of Wisdom

People are often unreasonable and self-centered.
 Forgive them anyway.
If you are honest, people may cheat you.
 Be honest anyway.
If you find happiness, people may be jealous.
 Be happy anyway.
The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.
For you see, in the end, it is between you and God.
 It was never between you and them anyway.

— Mother Teresa

Happy Sunday : )
