Because I don’t have running water in my studio, my winter practice is to haul buckets — one for clean water, one for rinsing. But when the calendar says “spring”, it seems reasonable to wait and carry pots to the hose. Then, the rinse water can go right onto plants or the compost pile. The dirty pots and jars piled up a bit when it kept snowing.
Today, the sun is shining, my feet are warm, and that stack is getting scrubbed. And as you can see, it’s time to sweep up the daily quota of Asian lady beetle corpses.
Honestly, I tried to think of a way to make this part of the job sound more glamorous. Any suggestions?
