I am VERY excited about my new acquisition. Despite many potential applications in dentistry or brain surgery, it is a “weed popper”, designed to remove dandelions. Definitely not something that I want to have tucked in my purse when I’m going through customs.Not sure how well it works yet, but I can’t wait to try it out on weeds (and maybe slugs).
Other extreme gardening excitement this week includes:
1) The first prototype garden frame was completed by the in-house engineering team. It has passed the preliminary evaluation criteria and despite being lighter than anticipated, it seems to fit the frames well. The team is going to work on creating about five or six more in the upcoming months.
2) Got a quote for rebuilding the stone wall in the back yard. Likely will go ahead with that, since my previous attempts at pouring cement were unsuccessful (don’t ask).
3) The seeds arrived! Peas + inoculent, parsnips, kale, carrots (purple and orange), beets (mixed pack), lettuce, brussel sprouts, squash, pumpkins, corn, more kale, nasturtiums and calendula. Potatoes, beans and pumpkins are back ordered.
