What grows in your garden?

My dad and I planted a garden on the side of my house this spring. I've been wanting to do this for the past two years, but something always got in the way of our plans. Not this year! We finally did it. We have tomato plants, yellow squash, cucmbers, radishes, green beans, watermelon (dad's idea - we'll see) and some herbs. It's been a ton of fun watching everything grow and a great project to spend time with my dad on. He's a Mississippi country boy afterall.

Look at that cucumber!

And those radishes-

Yellow bell peppers -

(gasp!) Rowan Felted Tweed (shade 155)!

Rowan Polar (shade 654)!

Filatura Di Crosa Nilo in color 50!

Rowan Calmer (shade 476)!

Sigh. It's a nice fantasy. These are actually some of my finds from the Black Sheep Knittery sale in May. There has been very little knitting going on here lately. Hopefully that will change soon. Here's an update on the grey sweater:

The back, one side of the front and a sleeve are done. It's growing. Very slowly.
