It's harvest season in my area. The farmers are out all day and most of the night reaping this years crop. The colors in the fields are amazing. It reminds me of spun gold. I love this time of year. The sound of the combines harvesting across the countryside is so comforting to me. I relax when I hear the hum of the engines.
I'm hoping for a second harvest of my own. I planted some more lettuce and radishes a few weeks ago. I'm planning on baby greens for a Thanksgiving Day salad. Sounds good right? I know what you are thinking because I'm thinking it myself. I'm crazy, nuts, unrealistic so on and so forth. That may be too much to expect. Usually my garden has been put to bed by now. I can't seem to let this gardening year go. I purchased a 60"x50' roll of garden row cover. It should keep plants safe to 24 degrees. Maybe, just maybe I can make this work.
Last night it got down to 28 degrees. Brrrr. I uncovered my tiny little plants carefully. Looks like the garden quilt works. The lettuce is safe and sound.
On the knitting front I started another fingerless glove project. I picked out a very simple pattern to show off this colorful yarn. This is the first time I have knitted with Boku by Plymouth yarns. Hopefully it will soften more when I block it. I'll blog more about it next time. Hopefully I will be finished by then. On a personal note thank you for all the well wishes for new new position. This is my first week with my new employer. So far so good. I fell very blessed.
