Madeleine is a big fan of the edible pod and I finally remembered -- in March -- that March is the time to plant peas! I planted two of the three pergola planters with peas and I'm thinking of clematis in the third -- the way it's situated, the plant would get plenty of sun and its "feet" would be naturally cool (they way they like it) because of the orientation. I originally thought I'd plant tomatoes in these planters, but it's not working out that way. Sometime in the next two months, DH and I will make some kind of raised planter thingy on the back side of the southern-most pergola bench, and I'll plant beans -- eventually, it will make a leafy bean curtain behind the bench.
We broke records yesterday with a high temperature just shy of 80 -- both the temp and the humidity rose very quickly in a short period of time yesterday afternoon. There were tornado watches all over our area and even a few warnings. It's too nice a day today to be stuck behind a desk, but here I am.
I've only just posted the ninth installment of my 100 Little Things project -- there should be about twice that number at this point -- but I have some things in queue and I'll be doing a little catch-up over there.
I washed and blocked the Baby Cashmerino V-neck sweater, wove in all the ends, did a tiny bit of seaming (remaining shoulder, one side of each pocket flap). I guess my heart wasn't really in it. Again, I am reminded, there is as much finishing in a baby sweater as there is in an adult's -- you'd think it would go quicker because the seams aren't so long, but it doesn't. Once the mattress stitch gets set up, the length of the seam doesn't really matter. It must be the threading of the needle that takes so much time. ; )
The tattoo jury is still in deliberations. Thank you so much for all your advice! You'll be among the first to know when a verdict is reached.
