In the spring, mom and I planted some veggies. I put some in containers in my apartment, but we also planted vegetables in her garden.

Well now it’s harvest season. Here’s an update on both hers and mine.

It seems Suspicious Corn isn’t ready to give up on his quest from last week to find out why I’m doing “simple projects” so he continued to hassle me this week. Despite his interferences, I efficiently used left over fabric to sew shorts and a sweater.

This week I looked back at some of my previous sewing projects. I fixed a few of them and reviewed others. Some items are staples in my wardrobe now while others are simply lost causes.

Oh, and there’s a new Corn in town. Suspect Corn.

The responsibilities from last week continued this week, but this time it was taking care of my nephew for a few days. With the time I had left over, I made the remaining laundry bags using recycled fabrics.

I’m a grown man and I’ve been throwing my dirty laundry on the floor in my closet. Shame. I had visions of making a magnificent hamper contraption with pulleys, levers and such but in the end decided to use what I had in my apartment to sew a laundry bag. That, turns out, was the true genius.
