Pillows, Rain, How High Do Your Veggies Grow?

I decided to decorate my son's front porch for his 4th of July party and I needed pillows for his Adirondack chairs. I decided to make some out of old jeans. I bought some trim and cut the jeans apart. I made this one which creeped everyone out because it looked like someone lost their legs.


But the other ones came out pretty nice.


Some of them have little crystal trim. I, of course, broke my needle on these.


The other ones have tassle trim.


It rained yesterday. (click for closeups)


Rain collected on all the fallen leaves.


A drop on the tomato.


Dripping off the eggplant blossom


Rain on the Hydrangea leaf


On the tomato leaf


Collected like jewels on the snap peas


And on the pea blossoms


Rain drops on the fern



And inside the Daylilies


The first bush beans




The first bell pepper




These pictures are for comparison. I stuck the green plastic ruler in the dirt so you can see how tall my plants are. How big are yours? These are tomatoes.



These are peppers and eggplants. I think they are really small for this time of year.


These are tomatoes in my lower raised beds. They are much bigger than the others but they don't have many blossoms.



These are the snap peas and i only get about a handful each day. They sure are good!


The tall plants are the tomatillos.


These are the edamames. No blossoms yet.


These are the bush beans that are just forming.


The pumpkins....no blossoms yet.



And sorry again Pricilla.....another spider. This is pretty one!

Raindrops are such facinating things : little jewels. The spider on her web is beautiful !!

I like your pillows very much ! What a great idea ! And you can't get sturdier than jeans.

Our carrots are just pointing their heads. Cucumbers also. Tomatoes are not in flowers yet. But the herbs are doing great. I'll take some pictures as soon as the rain finally stops and I can get the weeds out ! lol
