Knitting and More Yarn

Bye, Focus

Jeff sold the car on ebay so now both subarus are in the garage.

Garden and Stuff

 Someone is nibbling!
 I'm collecting lots of Cosmos seeds.

 I'm letting new starts grow eventho I know they won't have a chance to mature before a freeze.
 Jeff's tomatoes are plentiful.
 A trip to the big house in Centennial brought stuff from Bob's shed, including a tape measure for me!!
