An early morning pick.

Why am I temptped to think it was '4 for me, 1 for the bucket?!'

Remember the story 'The Enourmous Turnip'? Well some of these were like the enourmous onion.

I am not as good as I wish I was in the garden. I think I need a hat that says 'I'd rather be sewing'! Having said that, I am very very thankful for the gardener of the household because there is really nothing like it.
These apples looked nice when I shined them up- although (and I know you'll be surprised given my high level of photographic genius!) you can't really tell!


  1. Oh yummy!

    I am a hopeless gardener! My DH is always hassling me about my lack of care of the garden.

    I too would rather be sewing!

  2. I am definitely not the gardener in our family but gosh they look fabulous growing & of course enjoying the fruits of someone elses labour :)

  3. Love it, which reminds me I should get the kids to pick our strawberries before the hungry caterpillar discovers our secret stash at the other end of the garden! .. lol Mel xox

  4. Your apples look lovely . Really I thought that was the rule for strawberries , 4 for me 1 for the pot !

  5. Nice pickings, I love home grown. You are lucky you got any strawberries in the bucket!!

  6. I hope you had a wonderful holiday and are getting off to a great start to the new year. I wanted to thank you for entering my Sew Mama Sew Giveaway. I know that that was a busy week for everyone trying to enter all of the contests and it was hard to actually take the time to get a good look at the blogs. So I would like to invite you back to one or both of my blogs to look around and see if one of them is a place that you would like to come back and visit again. If so, please consider signing up as a follower or putting me on your blog list so you will know when I post. My sewing blog is and my art blog is I would also like to remind you that my 9 year old daughter has her own sewing blog. You can visit her at
    Thank you so much for your time, and I hope you have a beautiful day.

    God bless,
