There was very little tatting done in the Piney Woods yesterday but, I managed to get a lot of garden work done. One thing though, I did get too hot and am paying for that mistake today. I'm drained, so I think I'll sit in my comfy chair and tat the day away.
Here are some images from our garden:
One of the many bowls I filled with tomatoes, purple hull peas, squash, Christmas beans, speckled butterbeans & figs.
This is a Christmas beanpod.
And these are Christmas beans- they are a type of very large speckled butterbean. My bunch loves them!
While the beefsteak tomatoes are ripe & plentiful, my roma tomatoes are taking their time ripening. I'm ready to make some homemade salsa- they need to hurry up!
And our huge fig tree is just LOADED with figs! I'll be making fig preserves this weekend and will probably bake a fig poundcake. Big Daddy is awfully fond of my fig poundcakes!
Well, I am going to make a fresh pitcher of mint iced tea and then settle in my favorite tatting spot. Have a great day & until tomorrow~
