Strawberries and Sweaters and Slugs, OH NO

First Strawberry

I promised some picture of my wonderfully, successful strawberry adventures in the SuperGarden. I took these on Thursday. My pride and excitement at not one, but TWO 020 nearly ripe berries made me giddy.

The next morning I went out to discover the reddest, ripest of strawberries had a chunk missing out of it!! I was devastated (do I take this garden stuff too seriously you think?). I thought perhaps it was a bug…I went out in search of organic bug spray yesterday and coated my poor babies.

Flash forward to this morning…the other nearly ripe strawberry had a CHUNK missing. My friend Google immediately located similar pictures online and the suspected culprits? SLUGS. Eww. Or snails. I have seen neither, but guess where I am going now? That is right, to buy some organic slug/snail stuff (that is so a technical term). I must save the 022strawberries!!!

I ‘ve been home from work the past two days, hanging out with my niece and sister-in-law. They came from AZ to stay with us so Nannygoat could work her photographic magic with a senior picture session. My niece is an identical twin to Bear. It is amazing how much cousins can look alike. Please go check out the beautiful pictures Nannygoat took HERE.

Now you are probably wondering about the sweater part of the title? Well, if I can’t kill the slugs I was thinking of crocheting them little sweaters for our cool, damp mornings….

Kidding. I am making a super cute little sweater for Big Blue! I am nearly half way through, you can click this link http://ravel.me/Crochetvixen/s1 and see my progress (and the pattern picture). I am thinking it may be completed before Easter, so I will post the pretty girl in her new sweater soon!! Also if you are on Ravelry, look me up –  crochetvixen.

Up tomorrow on the blog: SuperGarden fencing and planting!! Easter crafting!! Anything else I think of!!

Wordless Wednesday-I Made a Lovely Hat (ignore the grey hair and the wrinkles on my nose, do it, I say so)

SAS SOS

I have mentioned a couple of times (but probably not enough) about Shelly’s Share A Square Project. It is such a big undertaking and a wonderful idea. That lady has a heart the size of Texas! One of the reasons you have not been getting as many long, mind numbing posts from me, is because I am working of putting together one of the afghans for her.

Well, Shelly needs a bit more help . She has a lot of squares and people to help put them together, but not enough squares to let each child know that 48 different people cared enough to send them love squares. Now if you don’t crochet that is okay also, just let your readers know and tell your freinds and family, and surely you will run into someone who can crochet. We have squares from all over the world already, but we need a little more variety. Can you help and fast?
