Weekly review: Week ending June 27, 2010

Happy summer! I finished building my Adirondack chair today. I think it’s the first time I’ve ever sat in a chair that was just the right size for me. It took only two weekends, thanks to the templates that W- made. I also spent some time tweaking my box joint jig. I can turn out reasonably-well-jointed boxes now, yay!

Our garden is paying off. This afternoon, we grazed on sugar peas, snow peas, tomatoes, and strawberries, picking and eating things straight off the stem. The nasturtiums I planted out front because of their edible flowers turned out to be quite peppery, reminding me of radishes. I planted four kinds of basil in the back garden box in preparation for pesto season. Life is good.
