Last week I made a couple of dolls to send to the Casa Bernabe orphanage on the outskirts of Managua, Nicaragua. Eren of Vintage Chica will be traveling to Nicaragua in July and will bring the dolls with her. I hope to make a few more before the deadline of June 13th. If you’re interested in participating, check out the Craft Hope website for details.
Here are the latest photos of my salad table’s progess: it’s been a little over three weeks now and it is at the microgreen stage. The arugula (the largest, greenest row) and mustard greens (just behind the arugula) are particularly tasty. I planted several different types of lettuce, all of which are still quite small but are coming in nicely. The herbs (in the first rows) and the spinaches (in the last rows) are taking their sweet time.
I’m heading off to San Francisco for a few days. When I travel, I usually take only a few pictures, choosing to live in the moment rather than to take the time to capture it on film (or SD card, as the case may be.) When I return home though, I always wish I had more pictures… so I’m promising right here that I’m going to take lots of pictures and post about my trip next week!
