Darn Weeds! (Not for the squeamish!!)

It was an innocent afternoon of picking garlic scapes for the market...which are planted on a hill...which does have way too many weeds and leftovers from last year's bramblefest...when I went to turn away and step back down hill...and WHAMMO! Stick in the eye!

I pulled out the piece of stick in my eye purely instinctively, but unfortunately left 4 slivers of whatever it was...

And then followed a nightmarish afternoon at the eye doctor. Ever seen that horror flick where they pull open your eye and come at you with a big hypodermic needle???

Yeah...been there.
