The garden very quickly fizzled out. Not much likes to grow in the heat other than okra and sweet potatoes. The tomatoes and peppers will probably come back in the fall. I still have a couple of watermelons left too. I’ll need to harvest them this week.
I’m having a hard time typing today. I cut my left pinky finger a third of the way down from the nail to the flesh. I didn’t slice the entire nail off which will hurt like the dickens once that nail gets nudged. For now I’ve got it in a makeshift splint to try to keep the nail immovable–at least until I can decide whether to rip off what’s left or try to wait for the cut half of the nail to grow to the quick.
It was the last of the pears that did it. I was cutting them into quarters and cooking them in a little sugar before they went bad. I’ll be feeding them to the pigs and chickens.
We have some fence work to do today so I need to be extra careful. I think I have a hard plastic finger splint somewhere. I’ll have to go without a glove, but I think it would be better to keep the pinky protected. It’s pretty tender right now.
I should’ve paid more attention, but the fruit was soft and my fingers slipped onto the oncoming blade. At least it was only one finger.
Have you ever had a kitchen accident?
