I have to admit that I’m not that fussed about the Chelsea Flower Show which is on this coming week. However I do like the alternative garden festival the Chelsea Fringe. Last year fellow blogger Veg Plotting got involved with it in the form of cakes, which I’d guess that most gardeners like. This year she’s gone for Shows of Hands where as you can see she’s asking us to do a post about our hands.
You’ve probably seen quite a lot of part of my left hand in various posts usually when I’m holding potatoes, tomatoes or something else to photograph them. So here it is in it’s full unencumbered glory.
My right hand is perhaps a bit more interesting as I have a small lump on my middle knuckle and my middle thumb joint is somewhat arthritic and swollen. As you can see I don’t wear any rings or a watch, and like to keep my finger nails trimmed so that I don’t get much dirt under them.
I generally don’t wear gloves on the plot, and if I do they’re soon removed, apart from when I’m pruning the blackberry bush and rose. If I wear any they tend to be a pair of cheap lightweight ones like the ones on the right of the picture.
If you want to do a Shows of Hands post then have a look at Veg Plotting’s post via the link above or this Chelsea Fringe webpage for details.
Have a good week!
