The first weekend of the month was the Siouxland Renaisance fair. The weather was great! It hasn't had that good of weather for the last 3-4 years at least. The turnout was pretty good, not great, but it was a good number from what I saw.
Last weekend I spent in Omaha, I'm proud to report I didn't get lost getting their or getting home. It was a good weekend, but entailed alot of work. So next time I am there I expect to have.....fun. I will be going back for the weekend of the 4th (can I just turn the calendar ahead and pretend it is here already?)
This weekend, so far I have done laundry, looked at my sewing machine (and then turned away from her), worked on some stitch markers (don't need much concentration for those) and just got up from a nap.
Tomorrow I am going to my friends house in Parker, we are going to get our dyeing ready for next weekend. We need to reskein the yarn and premordant it, so next weekend, we just need to wet it and throw it in (if it really were that simple). I know she has said what we are going to dye with, but for the life of me, I can't remember what she told me....darn memory.
Next weekend we are having our Mad Dogs event in Parker, so I won't be around yet again. I do have friday and monday off though. But friday I have a Dr appt and so does the monster. Then we are camping that night through Sunday. Monday I will recover, do the camping laundry and who knows what. Then I only work tues and weds, then have a 4 day weekend again (I love vacation time).
Now to the part many of you actually want to see....the pictures of my container garden.
My japanese eggplant bloom, dog head for scale of course.
Other eggplant prebloom thingies (I'm sure theres a real name for these, but I don't know it)
This is a flower I got for Social Work Month from the place that hosted our luncheon in March. Its amazing I haven't killed it and it has actually bloomed since I got it. It is a Kalanchoe. I've never heard of them but they are pretty. When I got it it was covered in flowers. They actually last quite awhile.
Sweet Pea Blooms. I actually have several blooms and hope to have better growth this year even though I have less number of plants overall.
Chocolate Mint....anyone know what I should do so it isn't so spindly (i.e. more leafy)?
I'm loving my bush tomato plant. It already has at least 4 tomatoes growing and maybe more I haven't seen. And tons of flowers. My grape tomato plant is doing ok, but nothing compared to this baby. Next year I think I will be getting 2 of these.....and some carrots and who knows what else?
And thats the end of the garden pictures.
