watermelon patch and patchwork

Yeah! My little garden patch is growing. I planted tomatoes, cucumbers, watermelon, onions and nasturtiums . All this rain we have had for early summer, has helped with the watering. I am most excited about the watermelons!

interesting info found online about watermelon-

Watermelon: Composed of 92% water, it is also packed with a giant dose of glutathione which helps boost our immune system. They are also a key source of lycopene – the cancer fighting oxidant. Other nutrients found in watermelon are Vitamin C & Potassium.  Watermelon also has natural substances [natural SPF sources] that keep our skin healthy, protecting our skin from UV rays.

 Doing a little patchwork by hand…not yet sure what this will be……possibly a tote. I saw a really cute patchwork tote yesterday.

Hope all of you are well, enjoying some sunshine, and a relaxing Sunday afternoon.

    So glad your garden is growing and that you’re harvesting some tasty delights! The watermelon looks sooo refreshing…It’s been so hot over here, we could go for some of that! Your patchwork is lovely–lots of juicy colors there. Was so sorry to read in your previous post that you’ve been feeling blue…Hope things are looking up and you’re more in the pink ;o) Happy week ((HUGS))
