typing with one hand...

...the one that isn't broken. The left one. Yes, I'm right-handed (of course!). So all fall gardening plans involving heavy lifting are now officially on hold for the next several weeks. I think I can pull weeds one-handed, maybe, plant seeds, and start seedlings; everything else I can think of takes two hands. We'll see what the hand orthopedist has to say...

  3. Yikes! Well, at least you might become more ambidextrous? Hope you recover quickly and not too painfully! I once tripped on a CURB and ended up with a hairline wrist fracture (ages ago) and was SO annoyed and yet embarrassed, so I sympathize!

  4. My husky broke my arm three days after we found him. I got him fixed. We're even. (actually the breaking of my arm was accidental; he pulled me off balance in a creek and I hit a boulder -- but I now have a plate in my arm)

    Caroline, let me know if you need anything. I'm not too far away and am glad to help.

  6. Oh, no. I'm sorry to hear about your arm (wrist). On another note...Your garden beds are very nice and I'm sure you are looking forward to using them.
    Hope it heals quickly.

  7. I hope you recover quickly. It's hard work trying to garden with one hand. Your raised beds are great. Look forward to seeing a good crop this winter.
