You can call off search and rescue, I’m still alive! Buried, but still breathing! I try to maintain a certain level of perspective, but when you have mason jars full of garlic scapes, endless quarts of strawberries, and 5 gallons of just-picked peas all staring you down it can get a bit overwhelming! And that is just the tip of the garden harvest; don’t get me started on the beets that need pulled, lettuces that need washed, and summer seeds and transplants that need attention!
This year my experiment with garden mulch has proven to be worth its weight in gold, or in my case, time! Up until the past few days I was able to spend a good bit of quality time in my studio behind my machines! I seem to always have a never-ending pile of clothes to mend/alter, UFO’s (UnFinished Objects) tucked away in cabinets and random projects just waiting to be brought to fruition! Then there’s the shop and website…which brings me to my latest sewing endeavor!
Expressly Local Food, a Lancaster shop specializing in organic and locally grown food, offers locally roasted coffee, baked goods, bulk items, canned preserves, and my fabric totes and mesh produce bags! (Along with a few other Pixy Patch items!) I wanted to make sure the shop was well stocked before I let the cat out of the bag on the blog and websites!
That’s right, I am now offering MESH PRODUCE BAGS!!! This is something that has been in the works for quite some time! There is just too much single-use plastic floating around, mainly in bodies of water and buried in landfills! By using these sturdy, lightweight, reusable mesh bags you are eliminating the need for the disposable plastic ones found at the food store! I have three sizes available, S-M-L, all made from durable mesh netting, featuring a stylish fabric casing and hand-crocheted drawstring.
…and now for the give away!! I am offering one of my fabulous blog readers a set of 3 reusable mesh produce bags! For your chance to win leave a comment telling me what you would fill your produce bags with. For me it’s usually lemons (for making fresh-squeezed lemonade), garlic and onions! For additional entries you can do one or all of the following: repost this give away on facebook, friend PixyPatch on facebook, reblog the give away, or sign up to follow Twisted Threads! For each one you do be sure to leave a separate comment. You must complete the mandatory entry first though! I will use the all-knowing Random Number Generator to select the winner. Give away ends June 22nd at 11:59 pm EST! Good luck and thanks for reading!! 🙂
This Contest is now closed! A big Thank You to everyone that entered, the all-knowing number generator selected comment #11 from Tree as it’s winner!
