Get with child a mandrake root

Funny, I just bought a book on John Donne yesterday, and today -- look what I found in the garden!

Of course, mine is a carrot, and very obviously a boy.  But what does that matter; impossible is impossible.
We also harvested potatoes this morning.

A pretty present for a new bride

Here are some more pretty things from Pam.  My favorite is the peach.  And also the pea.  Oh, and the carrots and radish.  Actually I love them all!

Meanwhile, I am working on "fit."  I took a Palmer Pletsch fit workshop in Seattle last week, taught by Nancy Seifert.  It was great!  I really learned a lot, even though I had taken fit workshop once before.  Now I'm putting the altered patterns in order, copying the sloper onto swedish pattern paper, and finishing the blouses I fitted in class.  Pictures soon!

First harvest

Today we picked the first "fruits" of David's new garden.   Brand new baby vegetables!  And I planted the potatoes!

And yet to come -- corn!
