Knitting, spinning, pets, food and other thoughts

Not sure if this qualifies …


as a Rube Goldberg arrangement or not, but that’s what I thought of when I put together something to raise the seedlings up closer to the lights πŸ˜‰

I raided the pantry for enough same-sized things to raise the trays up, then added the bread pans and cereal boxes when the cans weren’t enough.

L to R: Brandywine (red) tomatoes; Dagma's Perfection (yellow) tomatoes; rhubard chard.

At the rate these are sprouting I suspect we may have quite a few to share! The large tray has peat pellets with more chard, DH’s chili peppers, 6 more tomatoes and some Italian sweet peppers, plus a dozen more empty pellets. The next trick may be to keep them from becoming kitty snacks!

I finished the first pair of socks from the Dyeabolical yarn,

then promptly started another pair (for me!) with some yarn that was a gift from a good friend.

Meanwhile, we’re hoping that whatever made off with our spring weather will send it back!

  1. Aren’t you clever? And, those socks are gorgeous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And, what’s a spring?

  2. The funnest project we ever did with/for our kids in school was the Rube Goldberg project. Well done, but I can’t see any moving parts?

    Love the socks!

    And knitwonpurltoo, you may know spring by another name. It’s also called Waterinthebasementunderthenewcarpet.
