In The Field: My Love got a new toy - well new to us. A 2009 combine and header.
What is it they say about men? Boys love their toys- they just get more expensive as they grow up?
In The Garden: I finally got around to getting my seeds started for our spring garden.
Here's a view of what we're planting:
I only start some of my seeds inside - we plant the squash, okra, and cucumber seeds directly into the garden soil when it warms up. So yesterday I started the cilantro and basil, bell peppers and tomatillos. I also started several varieties of tomatoes - some hybrid (Heinz 1498 and Yellow Pear) and some heirloom (Cherokee Purple, Box Car Willie, and Black Krim). There's nothing I love more than a home-grown tomato. I can hardly wait - my mouth is watering...YUM!

On The Crafting Table: Update - sorry, I haven't had time to get the tutorial up yet - but it is coming, I promise! I am working on the 2nd of two peasant dresses for a friend of mine - hoping to have it done today or tomorrow at the latest. I'll post pics when it's finished!
This was my weekend to work The Fig Leaf thrift store in Eden and I scored some great finds! Mostly clothes with lots of fabric that I can reconstruct for play clothes for Baby Girl this summer. I found an awesome size 22 women's skirt that will be perfect for a pair of pants for Baby Girl - and the cost - $.50. Hard to beat!
