This is what I harvested for yesterday's dinner, straight from the garden, and nothing tastes better than fresh veges.
Problem is, I seriously lack motivation in the garden at the moment. I think it has something to do with being the only one who does anything in there. Hubby works full-time and when he has spare time at home he does other stuff, like mow the lawns. He does get enthused about the orchard sometimes and helps water and mulch in that area, and he enjoys eating the fresh veges, it's just not a passion for him. And because it's not a passion for me either, just an interest and something I feel we should be doing, it becomes a bit of a chore when I'm doing it all on my own.
It could be the heat too. Summer has finally shown itself and the days are heating up. It gets uncomfortably hot out there if I try and do any work after nine am.
So instead of just moaning about it and resenting it, I'm going to try a new approach. Evening gardening! Usually I spend evenings sewing, blogging, talking and watching the news at eight. But I'm going to try and get out in the garden once the kids are in bed and hopefully Hubby will join me. Work is so much more enjoyable when there is someone else to share it with.
And on quilting matters - I'm just hand sewing down my faced binding on my "Beneath the Southern Skies" entry. Hopefully I'll be able to photograph it properly soon and show it to you.
