Fruits of My Labor

Some of you may have been expecting to see my 3 boys in this post. . . While they ARE fruits of my labor (heck, Spencer was 15 HOURS of labor!). . . I'm referring to these beauties. . . I GREW THESE! I'm just so excited that veggies are growing in MY Garden!!! I planted late. We have mostly clay. We've had LOTS of rain, wind & hail. And now we're kind of DRY. Woo HOOOOO! The sugarsnap peas are tasty. Hopefully the beets will be too. I'll have to rely on my boys' opinions for those as I'm not a big fan. I'll have to take a shot of the whole garden again. It's getting quite big. I have (or will have) sweet corn, pumpkins, cantaloupe, green peppers, zucchini, green onions & tomatoes in addition to the peas & beets. Not bad for a first time gardener!
In other news. .. I'm putting together the fabric selections for my first quilting project(s). I can't post WHAT I'm doing yet. .just in case the recipients read my blog. But I'll post the finished products later:)

Wow, they look great! I can only manage to keep certain flowers alive- I'm so jealous!!!

15 hours of labor, oh you are making me hurt all over ;o).

Ummmmmm...that's not fruit.

This is the first year that we didn't plant a garden, and I miss it! There's nothing like fresh vegies!
