Dave and Mike spent Father's Day making life safer for the little dogs. Now they can run in circles like maniacs and we can just stand there watching, not having to corral them from the curb, as if there were a curb.
They are never let out alone, we always walk with them, as that is half the fun of having doggies. That and making sure their digestion is working properly, and you know what I mean. Today I was able to drink my coffee and use my camera and didn't have to wear my running flip-flops.
While I was out there I got to check up on the veggie beds, which are starting to produce nicely. Lots of tiny cucumbers are growing into big boy cucumbers. Woowoo. And there are lots of blossoms on the green beans and zucchini. Soon, very soon.
I already enjoyed my first Sweet 100 cherry tomato and I can see the second one is starting to turn orange.
The heirlooms are producing in great number, and thankfully the cages are holding everything up and off the ground. These were a great investment and so user friendly. As the plant grows up I am able to relocate the side supports to keep the branching inside, more or less.
It's hard to take a photo without the dogs getting in the picture.
Bite bite bite...
Later, Chum and Dex joined me in the studio for some R and R while I worked on the yarn inspired quilt. Here's a tiny preview. I will put it on the wall today and see what else it may need and then start on the quilting. While I used the yarn for my colorway jumpstart, it only got me so far. I had to bring out the saturated color.
