Gardening Dishcloth

We've become quite the garden-loving family the past couple years, so needless to say we were stoked to get our plants in the ground this spring.  We attempted growing from seed, but they didn't survive past a couple weeks.  I'm not sure what we did wrong, but we plan on researching a bit more this winter and we'll try it again next spring.

We pretty much have the same as last year: onion, peas, strawberries, cucumber, tomato, zucchini, and pumpkin.  We did add a few new ones to the mix -- green beans, corn and peanuts!  I'm not convinced the corn will last (some critter is already nibbling them) but I'm looking forward to see what the peanuts will do.

Here's a free dishcloth pattern to all those garden lovers out there!  Happy knitting everyone!
