More garden goodies. A nice bowl of lettuce that became a wonderful lunch salad.
Shelled peas to serve with dinner.
The pea pods will feed the worms.
While I was busy getting excited over this - I completely overlooked an even bigger surprise.
And not to let the garden completely outshine quilting, the baby quilt is done - quilted, bound and washed.
Okay, I know it needs a label . . . . but I still have a couple of weeks. Don't want to rush anything.

Fresh red tomatoes out of the garden warmed by the sun are oh so good! How soon will yours be ready? Should I start driving now?
I forgot to tell you that I like your new header.
Was the star hard to sew for the baby quilt? Those aren't my favorite stars to piece.

The baby quilt is darling! I always get too much lettuce at the same time, even tho I plant 2 weeks apart. We have come to love Wilted Lettuce Salad minus the hard boiled eggs. Yum.

Milah said...

The quilt looks great!

My garden has not been plowed yet. Still too wet.

The quilt is beautiful as usual. I love the color of your veggies so bright :)

Oohhh... it all looks so good! We used to help ourselves to stuff in my grandmother's garden... she always knew we did it... but we always told her we didn't eat ANYTHING! Love the quilt too! :) Beautiful!

Loris said...

Love the star quilt and especially the inner border. Enjoy those veggies!

KC Quilter said...

I love the quilt. What a great present, the label will make it that much more impotant. Isn't that why we add labels?

Oh, I do love the quilt. Where did you get that pattern? I would love to have it.

Your photographs are sooo nice! Fun food to look at even if I detest peas (it's the snap/squish thing). Wonderful baby quilt too, lovely job you did there!

Julia said...

Can I come over for lunch? :~)

GARI said...

The quilt is great! That little cowboy will be a deputy!

How are the worms doing, by the way? Are they producing yet, or is it still too soon?

Nice harvest!

Catherine said...

Wow - that baby quilt is fantastic! I love your new header.
All that lovely fresh food from your garden -- lucky you!

I told Dear Hubby that we could buy hundreds of tomatoes at the farmers market for what we spend on the garden in plants, etc. but there really is nothing better than walking out there and grabbing a fresh tomato and a snippet of basil to make a tomato and mayo sandwich! How's the Elna holding up? Light bulb still working? I finally just put my Ott Light behind mine and called it a day.

It's green day on your blog! Our grass here has just turned green this week...now to grow some green things in the garden!!
The star quilt turned out great!

Mrs. Goodneedle said...

Love, love, love the star quilt! It's wonderful!! Nature's bounty has never looked more delicious, either~ enjoy!

Lea said...

Your pictures are so good! Those veggies looks really YUMMY! Agh... I'm hungry.*S*

Kim said...

Hurray for a lovely quilt! So sweet, Libby.

The greens are so inviting...ooh for summer to come to MN, lol, you are making me dream of all things garden, Libby. Thanks. :)

Those peas would never have made dinner - before the advent of frozen peas when I was a child my mother would always get me to pod the peas when they were in their short season - somehow there never seemed to end up being enough in the pan - 'two for me, one for the pot!' :o)))

anne bebbington said...

ps love the baby quilt - what a great idea for a quick make :o)

Angie said...

Okay, just color me GREEN with envy over your veggies!!! They are beautiful, Libby! And I LOVE that baby quilt. One of these days I want to make me a quilt that is just one big star like that. Does that one have set-in seams? I don't do those :/ but I love the look of this one.

Your garden looks wonderful...nothing but a few buds on my tomatoes at the moment...and the deer are eating everything lately. That bread looks yummy.... too.

Candace said...

I can almost smell those fresh veggies from here, Libby! That first tomato is always such a prize, isn't it! Your baby quilt is wonderful - is it your own design?
Cheers!
Word Veri is "inguini" - with an "L" you could have a pasta salad with all your fresh veggies!

I've just dropped in whilst doing a google search for a simple girl quilt. Lovely! I've put you on follow because I love the quilts you've done. I've only done 2, and one of those barely counts lol!

The Quilt Buddy said...

Ohh Libby! It is perfect!

Patsy said...

Great garden goodies!!! I love your blog. Have a blessed day!!

Nicole said...

You put me to shame! I didn't even put in a veggie garden this year! I had such a battle with the snails last year I pretty much gave up. Now I wish I hadn't.
