Winter Vegie's......

Before Xmas last year a new to me blogger generously gave me a little something for nothing... So as a way to say thank-you I finally got around to knitting her these 2 washcloths....

The first one is a 'baby star', pattern available from here.....

And the second one (my favourite out of all the washcloths I've made so far) is 'The Meadow', pattern available here....

Both these cloths used under 1x50g ball of cotton each and were just beautiful to knit....


In my garden seed progress is coming along well with onions and beetroot now up...
The snow peas are looking wonderful too and next week will be ready for planting in the ground...

These little jiffy pots are great!!! When it's time to plant you just put the plant, pot and all, in the ground and your done, no disturbing of the root system needed what so ever. The pot breaks down into the soil over time...
Have you planted any Winter vegie's this year???? What grows best where you are???

Take Care :)

  2. My onions took ages to sprout, but they are finally on the go. Got snow peas which are climbing already, and my broadbeans are so tall they need a bit of help to stand up straight.

    Love the washcloths!

  3. Hi Jodie, yes we have planted some cabbage, some broccolini and snow peas and carrots. I also have some new tomato plants which grew out of the compost we used. I will need to transfer them when this cold snap slows down for a bit. Those washcloths look beautiful, I really love the meadow one.
