Summer is winding down, but here are a few of the harvests I managed to snap photos of this year.
This giant zucchini weighed over 8 lbs and took the 2nd prize ribbon in the biggest zucchini contest at our local fair in August.
Tomatoes have been late and slow to ripen. We may end up with many green ones ripening indoors.
Another recent baby quilt. I managed to finish this one in a month.
It was fun to make the scrappy trip around the world blocks with the tutorial from here. I only used five colors in each block because I didn’t want the blocks to be as big.
I hand quilted on the diagonal through the squares and did a baptist fan design in the border, all with purple thread.
It measures 36 by 46.

Snow came late this year with heavier snows in March and April 1st. Our crocuses were finally up on April 5th and are waiting for more sun to open. Little hands were excited to find them.
We also found one snow drop and one winter aconite pushing up through the mulch. Sun and warmer temperatures are predicted for next week. We look forward to many more blooms to come!
