I have one of those stupid work schedules which means I often go to two or three places each day to teach and then have an hour or two in between each place. Sometimes I can't get motivated to get changed and really work hard in the garden when I know I only have about an hour of free time, so I have started doing a few jobs around the place that I can do without needing to get changed. The latest one is to harvest the peanuts. I can usually manage to get a row or two out in between classes and don't end up so covered in mud that I have to have a shower before heading out again. This year's peanuts are not perfect, but I'm hoping I'll end up with enough to make a few batches of peanut butter.
Another job I decided I could do in patches in between classes was to water blast the deck again. Unfortunately I discovered pretty quickly that it isn't a job that should be done in your work clothes! Nothing like a full layer of dirt splattered all over you.... I'm thinking that when the peanuts are finished I may just revert back to reading a book and drinking coffee to fill in the time!
