How does your garden grow.....

Mine is slowing down these days. We had a raised bed put in this summer and I've been enjoying growing veggies for the first time!I had the most luck with lettuce (Hmmmm....) but it's mostly all gone now:( All that's left is my bmatoes.......

It's been so cold here at night (and during the day too as of late) That I've resorted to ripening my maters inside.

i should figure out what grows here in the fall....probably too late to start that now hau? Well it's fun anyhow I highly recommend it. My next goal is making Apple butter.
Step one: Buy some of those glass jar thingys
Step two: Make
Step three: Eat
See I have it all figured out!
I'll keep you posted if it ever happens.

My hat

Well I made my first Mohawk hat and I have to say I'm pretty happy with how it turned out! It was my first try at intarsia. It's easier than it looks. I need to make another one with different yarn, The stuff I used didn't have enough wool so it didn't felt as good as I'd hoped. The hat was supposed to be for Max but it fits me! Oh well! I guess I have a cool new Mohawk hat for the winter! Check it out!My pretty model! She wants one in pink of course. I guess that's my next project. I'll let you know how it turns out.....
