Two of my four veggie/herb beds are protected at least reasonably well from the bunnies. I hope to lash some chicken wire to the remaining PVC frames later today, and then can get them up tomorrow afternoon, weather permitting, and pop my tomatoes and remaining plants into the ground. Asparagus and rhubarb production is in full swing.

Knitting has gone slowly this week, due no doubt to how gorgeous the weather was and how much time I spent with a pair of loppers and fist-fulls of nettles. The leather-palmed garden gloves I got this year -- in April, I think, but possibly in March -- have a split seam, several serious scuffs in the leather, and a spot on the thumb that looks suspiciously like a popped blister, about the size of a nickel. They're getting serious use. I wish they looked like they were longer for this world. It's not every garden glove you can use to pull Russian Thistles without getting stuck!
I did, however, get One Single, Solitary Thumb knit on the first glove.
And five ticks off of my dog.
