I just went outside and picked some carrots from the garden (the little one was a mistake–it must have been very close to the big ones!). The seeds I ordered were carrots that were supposed to grow only about 5 inches long, so they are perfect. Next to them are some radishes. I’m not a big fan of radishes (unless they are daikons!) but they are easy and fun to grow.
And about the mosaic mistake. I finished another mosaic yesterday by grouting it. Today I went into the garage to start my next project and I noticed that the grout had cracks in it running from one end of the mosaic to the other. I put this mosaic on a piece of lumber that I cut, and I think that was a mistake because it appears that the wet grout has warped the board. Whoops. That mosaic probably took about 20 hours to complete. Next time I’ll use a different type of board… I’m hoping to still hang it up. The cracks might make it look very old. Either that or I will hang it up and one day the whole mosaic will pop off the board and make a giant mess!
