You can always tell when I've been busy; I don't post for awhile. Within the last day or so I finished another shelf for the hutch and started another. Saturday I moved the compost pile and added more straw to it; it was soaked with all the rain we had, so I covered it with a tarp this time. I'll check in a day or so to see if maybe, just maybe this time it's getting hot. I sure hope so; potato sowing season is just around the corner.
Today's chores consisted of putting the first coat of stain on the hutch shelf on which I'm currently working and clearing off the bench so that I could start a few more seeds. Today I started the Stuttgarter onions, radicchio 'Treviso', curly endive 'Tres Fine', celery 'Utah', and broccoli 'Calabrese'.
I also got started on a much needed medicine chest for Steve's bathroom at the bottom of which I'm going to put a towel bar for old-fashioned roller towels. Steve's hands, being bigger than mine, leave a very wet turkish hand towel, and his bathroom is much colder than mine, so his hand towels sour in a twinkling, or so it would seem. I have an extremely sensitive nose, so I decided that what that boy needs are some roller towels. So I searched around online and found a source for 'huck' toweling. I'll blog all about it later after I'm done so you can see what I'm talking about. I was making decent progress on it until I slipped and shoved a brand new, three quarter inch wood chisel into my left thumb.
I'm looking into stitches and a tetanus shot tomorrow. I really hate when I hurt myself; I can't put any pressure on my thumb without opening it up, and it's cramping my style. I'll be more careful next time and I have an idea for a better approach to what I'm doing.
In the meantime, though, ho hum. I can't do anything until I get past the gushing portion of the recovery.
But what a dummy, huh?
Oh and speaking of whoopsie, I think I have a few peas sprouting, but it might be too early to tell just yet.
