I have been running back and forth between baby vegetables and baby flowering plants. Some of you have long growing seasons but not us. June is usually safe from frost but not always. The weeds are exceptional this year, probably because we had heavy snow delivering more moisture than usual.
I may have mentioned my bunny problem. They love my vegetables and eat the necessary flowers, plus leaves. This year I decided that the dogs trampling the small plants would be better than their being eaten. So, now the dogs are almost as excited to go to the garden as they are to go up to the lakes. The elderly lady dog is content to sniff things and then nap under the black raspberries. The somewhat younger dog is half rat terrier and half Australian cattle dog. Ears like a bat. He hears things under ground and digs them out.
Back to quilting--this afternoon we had a wild thunderstorm so I ran to the sewing machine instead of the garden. After years of contemplation and indecision, I have decided not to put my planned border on a big applique quilt. With any luck, I'll get the new border sewn and baste the whole thing so it will be ready for handquilting this winter.
