Holy smokin' zucchini!

I went out to pick a zucchini the other week and was alarmed when I saw smoke rising from the plants. The earth was blackened, embers glowed and the darn things were smoking! Turns out Farmer Dave had "weeded" the garden several days earlier (while I was gone) with a torch. Boys and their toys.

Another strange sight in Bremerton, WA, near the ferry terminal.
(Yes, I was riding the ferry again.)

And my latest quilt project under the needle.
I love working with silk organza.
(This is some of the silk I painted a few months ago.)

Have a colorful day!

Pre-cooked zucchini fresh off the vine...what a concept!

Holy Smokin Zuchinni! LOL Here I thought you were going to write about a whole lot of zuchini. I have never heard of burning the weeds but that might be an idea...
