Anasazi Beans

We have beans! Not ready to eat yet but at least I see beans!

You can’t believe how happy I am to see these beans. The garden this year has tried my resolve! After last year’s total failure at gardening, and getting loads and loads of free rabbit poop this year, I was so optimistic. Between getting too much rain at once, then the usual dry spells, then the hail, I was so hoping for a great garden. At least the beans aren’t letting me down.

Yesterday evening I was out working, it was getting to be dusk and Vince walked out to the garden. He looked around and said “Is there anything out here to munch on?” I told him there was asparagus, potatoes, squash, carrots, beets, cabbage, onions, kale  . . that’s about it. I think he was wanting snow peas and they’re gone, but it was funny him standing in the garden and looking for something crunchy to eat.

It looks like at least we’ll have beans but I’m still holding out hope for pumpkins, okra, cucumbers, sweet potatoes and lots of tomatoes! I don’t think this year’s garden is going to be terrible!

Stash Report – May 22, 2016

Nothing used or added to the fabric this week.

Fabric Used this Week: 0 yards
Fabric Used year to Date: 2.5 yards
Fabric Added this Week: 0 yards
Fabric Added Year to Date: 0 yards
Net Fabric for 2016: 2.5 yards used

For yarn, I finished Campside Cardi (1,200 yards) and nothing added.

Yarn Used this Week: 1200 yards
Yarn Used year to Date: 7,773 yards
Yarn Added this Week: 0 yards
Yarn Added Year to Date: 15,289 yards
Net Yarn for 2016: 7,515 yards (red means I’m in the red!)

This is probably trying to justify bad behavior but at least my used number if bigger than my “in the hole” number. That’s a good thing, right?  Making sweaters really helps with the yarn numbers. Getting in the black before the end of the year is so do-able . . if I’ll just not buy more yarn!

How’s your stashbusting going?
