The Fiber Artist

Wow, that sounds pretentious doesn't it. But it is the name of my company, so I decided to use it. This is where I will keep a record of works in progress in the hope that it will result in more productivity. It will also give me a place to ramble on about my life, so that maybe later I will remember what happened in ___ (fill in day, month, year of your choice).

Spring Flowers

healthy tomato plant
 We have been working in the yard,  First we used some left over 6X6's and one new one to build the square 4X4 foot raised bed.  Then we planted the tomatoes and strawberries.  Once that was done, we planted my Tulip tree, actually Magnolia Anne.  And mulched them and the front flower beds with the peonies and iris. there were 2 tomatoes in the pot one healthy and one starting to look not so good.  I split them and the sickly one looked like it was not going to make it at all, but after the second day it had started to stand up again instead of lying down on the mulch.   One of the strawberries (out of 18 may not make it either but we will see.  All of the rest of what we planter seems very happy and are growing already.
