Next up is "Yoke Section 9," the really long strip across the front (or back, I hope). This is a milestone in my progress, as it is the last of the large pieces, and all the secions are now joined together. And also too big to fit on the scanner.
It's very pretty and dainty. It would make a good edging or insertion.
The diagram shows only the ends, and I take exception to the way the diagram parts are displayed on the page. If you ever make this, remember, next to the end trefoils, the longer chains need to be on the outer side of the curve on both ends.
Meanwhile, in the garden, there have been good times and bad times. Here's a picture from a week or so ago.
A deer got through the fence and ate a bunch of tomatoes, both fruit and vines. The squash plants didn't bear much and died an early death. On the up side, the deer didn't get all the tomatoes, and the vines are starting to put out new branches and blooms. I'm trying to grow some more squash from seed, and the young plants are looking good so far. I'm getting more cucumbers than ever before and I already made a batch of bread-and-butter pickles. (No idea why they are named that.) The peppers are starting to bear as well.
One plant that was supposed to be a jalapeno turned out to be this instead. I picked one when it was 6 inches long. I'll have to figure out what I can make with these.
