Yesterday was a mixture of studio and garden time. All my bush and pole beans had sprouted on damp paper towels in plastic baggies on top of the fridge for a couple of days, so I had to get them planted. My tall bean tower looks so awkward sitting inside a two foot high raised bed. Once those beans start climbing it's going to look like a modern version of Jack and the beanstalk.
Now that morning chores and hand watering are done, it's time to head to the studio. The fellow who I've been waiting for the past couple of week to replace some bricks in the larger Skutt kiln, has been a no show and I need to clear the slab roller (my only work table), of these pots that need bisquing. So I'm loading them today and then I'm going to do the job I couldn't get to the other day - lay all the tests I've done the past couple of months in numerical order and separate those that I want to use, along with a few I want to do further testing on and get the rest of them stored away from my work area.
It's going to be 90 degrees here today, and after work, I may just jump in the pool. I think it's time to test it. After all, it's been a year since we moved here and I have yet to set a foot in that pool!
