In our city garden plots, we are waiting patiently for our seeds and seedlings to get strong and grow. Seems like this spring was a long cold and rainy one. Now it is suddenly blazing hot. We are crossing our fingers, hoping these little guys can take it. I think we had more in the ground by this time last year that was already growing well.
This year we are looking forward to potatoes, onions, peppers, spinach, chard, tomatoes, beets, peas, lettuce, watermelon, cucumbers, radishes, and Chinese cabbage... so far. We are already strategically plotting how to fight our pests the cucumber beetle, squash borer, and harlequin bugs. I'll have to do a pest post this year. We are ready!

Sometimes my upholstery backlog keeps me offline for a while. These 2 matching fan back channel chairs were for a customer in D.C. I got them out this week, along with another arm chair (pics soon to follow).
Happy to see them move through the shop. It is hard but gratifying work!
