Some time back I started crocheting a blanket to use at the cabin. I didn't buy any yarn for this one, just used left overs from past years and yarn given to me by my mom. Well it's finished..love the colors.

This weekend I planted sugar peas and swiss chard. I have many more seeds to plant but it's still a little cold, frost this morning.

My seedlings are doing quite well, getting bigger, maybe a bit leggy so it better warm up around here..
The hollyhocks, marigolds and snapdragons that I started from seed are moving along in my unheated greenhouse. I have some mystery plants growing to..why oh why did I think I could recognize a seed???

I'm planting potatoes for the first time this year, Yukon Golds, if the weather holds they will go in this weekend.

You blanket is lovely very colorful. I am going to try to plant potatoes in a barrel like Marge did last year. It looked like it would be fun. I hope your plants grow big and strong.

Your blanket is really nice. Love how the colors all came together. We won't be planting a garden until the middle of May. You are so fortunate to be able to plant already.

As you can see, I am getting caught up on my reading after a long visit at the cabin. Your blanket turned out great. Which of your 20 beds at the cabin (just kidding - sort of) will get the honour? I started crocheting an afghan in October. I just finished the first panel (about 1/5th of the total needed). At this rate I should finish sometime in 2012. - Margy
