New Book ~ Garden Update

Our library is only open for appointments, and they are not interloaning anything.   It's a small library.  I finally broke down and purchased a few books.  I added this needle tatting book to my bookshelf.  

The tiller is finally fixed.  It needed a new belt, which lasted 12 years.  However, while putting it back together, Hubby had a spring he didn't know what to do with.  After dumping out our container of manuals (that's another purge job), we found a free manual online.  Boom! Tiller fixed.

We are a bit behind in tilling, so I haven't planted more yet, and it may rain this morning.  Time will tell what gets done, but we are more ahead this year than last year.

I know, I love that you can find manuals online because I sure can't find them around here when I need them! LOL! I tatted a bit years ago but it didn't stick with me. Enjoy your book! I'm still planting and finally got the soil out of my truck. Good gardening!

Sam I Am, I was so thankful for the online manual. Tillers are sold out around here and I wouldn't be able to find a new one. So thankful it's fixed and running. I am still planting here too, but dodging the rain today. I have much more to plant too.

You needle tat? So do I :-) I've never figured out how to use a shuttle. Was given instructions on needle tatting and taught myself so my skills are minimal. Tatted lace is so beautiful! Will have to look up the book. Thanks!

Enjoy your book. What would we do without the internet/computer and search engines. It is my go to place when I need to find something out. Glad you were able to get repairs done.

Lady Locust, I could never figure out the shuttle either.
