But I was… and look what I found! Flowers of the Sun by Southsea Imports. Ooooo so pretty! The flowers have got to be 8 – 9” across and rich wonderful colors. Not sure what I’ll do with it… so I got 4 yards to make sure I had enough.
I made a quick trip out for a family reunion – left on Wednesday last week and returned home Tuesday this week. Nice and easy drive out and back with a layover just outside of Indianapolis which is the midway point.
Oh and my garden… the one my husband was suppose to be minding. He didn’t think any tomatoes were ready to be picked… still too green he thought (probably made that assessment as he drove by). So I picked after I sat my luggage down…
Last night after dinner I washed, cut, cooked, and pureed all that would fit in my 12 Qt stock pot – which wasn’t nearly big enough for the task at hand. By 11 PM it had cooked down enough that it fit into my large crockpot where I left it simmering overnight. It will continue to cook down through the day today and I’ll most likely can it tonight when I get home.
See all those Romas? Never even touched them… since there were some greener ones in there I figured I’d wait. I knocked those off reaching for the ripe ones that had fallen off the vines and were laying in the dirt under the plants.
Next time I leave I think I’ll hire a gardener to mind the garden… too green my foot! LOL
I’m working a few more hours this week at the quilt shop as the owner is on vacation. Lots to do there with finishing up samples and cutting kits for the BOM programs.
But I’ll be pondering my Sunflowers…
