Good Evening Internet Friends!
So, the Victoria Day Long Weekend is over. As my son put it though it is still a bonus, because not only did we get a long weekend, but now we have a short week!. Alright, try to look at this positively...
The weather forecast for the farm last night was - 4 degrees Celsius (25 F)! Most of my plants had not yet surfaced so I figured that they would be okay in their dirt bed, but what about the strawberries, rhubarb and lavender. I spent most of yesterday afternoon fretting about this until I was cutting off the edges of my quilt to put on the binding. As I pulled off those long rows of bamboo batting I realized that since it makes quilts nice and warm that I could probably make a quilt for my plants. ☺
A quick trip to town to the Peavy Mart for some tarps and I made the best sleeping bag ever for my garden:
Today when I unwrapped everything I found:
The neighbor lost 23 of his tomato plants : (, wasn't using bamboo quilt batting is my guess.
Last evening I finished my Sylvia Olsen toque:
It kept my head warm last night while I brought all the flower pots in to the 5th wheel for the night!
Still need to block it, but it is very cozy and I will be knitting a few more of these in my future I think...
Hope this inspires your own creativity...
