Saturday, I had an injured thumb

Friday’s project had been to get the little irrigation system I purchased last year installed…

I read through all the instructions, watched a video, and gave it a shot…

a number of weeks ago we had attached the main hose and run it about halfway, so I finished laying it out so that the newly planted ferns will also get water on a more regular basis…

then I started fastening the feeder hoses… I started with the hanging baskets and then moved on to the perennials in the bed…

connecting the feeder hose to the main hose involves punching a hole, with a very handy tool, and then pushing the connector into the main hose…

this was the difficult part and my thumb took a beating… eventually I stopped because it was becoming painful…

for sure I won’t be working on it for a few days, lol…
