There are 7" leaves on my bigger plants. I'm just waiting for them to get fuller before I cut them.
I've been keeping all the lights on for the plants to get as much light as possible during this week due to the lack of sunshine.
Some folks have houseplants on their window sills and I keep lettuce - and I think "them is perty" LOL
So how do I do this harvesting? I've never done this before. Do you cut some leaves off from each plant or do I rip out the entire plant and stick another one in it's place? I almost hate to butcher them, but I have tasted a leaf or two and they are so tender and delicious - I want a Salad soon!
Here I have "Salad Greens" and they are a different variety - will probably need to thin them out and definitely need more light!
I also crocheted a soap bottle dishcloth dress for my neighbor's daughter:
The pattern suggest to wash your dishes with it and afterwards, instead of draping it over your faucet (or wherever) to dry, you simply slip it over your soap bottle. It has elastic in the top and waist, so it slips easily over the top. It irritates me that I can't find the pattern for you right now, because I too would like to make a few more of these. I had crocheted the white dress a while ago and added the red trim only yesterday to match my neighbor's daughter's kitchen. If anyone wants to find the pattern, try looking at the Crochet Pattern Central site, because that's where I found it. I'm just not sure if it was under dish cloths or soap bottle dress. They have so many nice free patterns there. I use that site all the time for patterns and highly recommend it. There's also a Knitting Pattern Central for knitting patterns.
In any case, my neighbor was very happy to have it to give to her daughter the next time she visits:
I also got a request for crocheting a couple of Swiffer Socks from a Facebook friend. She does not crochet and asked me to make her two in her favorite colors (pink, blue, purple.) I finished them this morning, look:
They are reversible, so you can use the ruffled side as a duster and the smooth side as a mop:
I also made another in lavender/lilac (I don't have purple right now) and sky blue:
Here is the top side:
Here's the link for this pattern in case you want to make your own. I will also list some in my Etsy shop in case someone else wants to buy them.
I'd best go and walk Gizzy since it's not raining right now and he's been sleeping so much that he needs more fuel for his dreams!
