Homesteading: Part Deux

Finished my first sweater a few weeks ago: and thanks to Knitting Pretty's 'Simple Sweater' pattern it was a piece of cake. And since it was so easy, not sure if I want to save it as a sweater or start unraveling to use the yarn for something else (it's too hot for an alpaca/acrylic sweater now!) But look out... now I'm ready to make more!

This homesteading thing is going pretty well—after being out of town for 11 days and just allowing the crops to get watered by the sprinklers, look at this! I made lettuce! (see it there, it's on the far left) Snap peas are coming up and the tomato plant is about 5 times the size it was when I left. I could get used to this lazy gardener thing.
