Odds and Ends

Here are some strange mushrooms that appeared overnight in our gravel driveway last month during our week of rain. They have held up surprisingly well through our hot weather and are just starting to shrivel. They look a lot like puffballs!

Here is what my salads have been looking like. I really need to finish off the greens I have before they become bitter and start sowing a new round of lettuce leaves in a week or so.

I have been doing fiber crafts for all that it has been GARDEN GARDEN GARDEN around here. I have been spinning my “Shooting Yarn” polwarth roving while participating in Tour De Fleece, a spinning event that occurs every year at the same time as the Tour De France and involves spinners  (of wool and other fibery goodness) trying to spin as much as they can during the time of the Tour. It is a lot of fun, mostly because of the internet camaraderie on Ravelry and the many many gorgeous pictures people post of their yarn.  I’ve been doing other spinning too and will try to get some pictures of it so I can put it up here.
