Cabbage, Red Chard and a close up of the broccoli.
Indoor Gardening. I started my own micro greens this fall and they are delicious. I snip off the leaves when I need them and toss them into a salad or on a sandwich. They take only days to sprout and in a couple of weeks, you eat them! Very Easy. Get a small container, some organic soil, sprinkle of seeds, water and a piece of plastic wrap for germination. Sunny location and ta da. Greens!
Sage and Basil
Herbs in a large pot. I thought I'd make a mixture. Sage, basil, parsley, rosemary, thyme, and I had some caraway seeds I tossed in. These two were the first to pop out. So Fresh and green. Incredible colors.
On another note, I meant to comment on my cookie donation to Garfield Farm. I drove out and dropped off some butter cookies and Carmel corn. They were setting up for their two day event of cooking and grilling the 1874 way. I only met a few folks but I think I was an outsider and while they appreciated the goodies, they weren't too sure about me. I wanted to learn about farming but they are into teaching how folks lived at that time. Reenacted events - not farming they way I think. Anyway. I got chased by the numerous geese walking around then went home. Beautiful place but not a farm.Christmas is in a few days. Happy Holidays to everyone.

Added to my Etsy page. The little Chinese inspired pin cushion is the cutest. I started it sometime early this year and thought I'd finish it and put it up for sale. I've always liked the little pin cushions you see in China town.
The strawberries are 6 in a basket.
Check out the site. Some cute little things for sale. www.etsy.com and type in dykes4000 in the "Shop Search"
Since it's almost winter here in Chicago Land - farm tours are on hold so I'm in my sewing room trying to create cute things.
Thanks for stopping by.

This is a felted tree picture that I made. My sister bought it and didn't know it was from me until she purchased it. Isn't that cool? Something she liked and then yo and behold, her sister was the seller. Cool.
Off to Garfield Farm to donate some baked goods for there year end get together. I'll post more about the farm later.
