    LOL – Before I read further, my first thought was “OMG, puu buried someone alive.” LOL

    it’s not funny–except that it sort of is–because that is TOTALLY what it looks like, right?! 🙂

  3. I thought that too!! Glad to hear it’s just the beginnings of delectable fruit, though! I’m very curious about that dress…that silhouette never works for me, so I’ve never tried it.

    lol I also thought you had buried someone – but I’m glad it turned out to be just seeds! I am crazy excited to see all of the goodies you harvest and what you do with them. There is simply nothing like homegrown fruit or veggies – it’s like heaven in your backyard. Speaking of which, can I come visit? 😉

    ahhh, gardening season. Love this time of year when there is so much anticipation and planning. I have been slowly weeding my way through all the perennial beds and clearing out grass. We had a driveway project in the property bordering us and I swear they brought in grass seed with the fill dirt. Sewing takes a back seat for me during this time.
