Get Growing

Remember I told you that everything in my garden dies a quick death? Well, not this year. Check it out. Here's the whole "garden"

Herb Garden as of 4-24

The clear winners are Oregano (in the middle of the rectangular planter) and the spearmint (pot on the ground on the left). The basil (pot on the stand on the left) is just starting to grow. I'm thinking in the heat of summer, we'll be lousy with pesto!

Basil- It's greener than in this picture.

Spearmint

Spearmint- funny that the peppermint isn't growing as quickly. Supposedly all mint is quick growing.

My sage is a little anemic. It doesn't help that the cat likes to chew on it. And the rosemary seems to be happy not to get bigger. Then again, it's only April.

I read this article from Jennifer of CraftSanity today. So I went to check out DayDream Glass. It's so pretty! I love that she makes glass rings in her basement. Of course, I had to snag one.

Glass Ring

It's hand blown glass. Pretty neat, huh?

The added bonus is that I grew up about 40 minutes from her. Supporting Michigan crafters!

Finally today, I keep forgetting to post the latest installment of the Yarn Pirate Booty Club. Here it is! New yarn base using bamboo, merino, and nylon. Very nice!

That ring is intriguing. It's wonderful the local web Michigan web site has a craft blog. Boston is so deficient, but then again the ravelry creators are from the Boston area.

That sock yarn is lovely. And your herbs. I'm dreaming of a caprese salad with the basil!

I would love to plant some mint (for the mojito factor alone! but am afraid of it taking over my yard.

Jealous of your garden! I have no gumption when it comes to gardening, which is very sad indeed. I love flowers and fresh produce, but I don't love the care of it. :( My hubby does this part. I will preserve it, though!
I love your ring - really gorgeous! And enjoy those boxing gloves! What fun!
