Dropping Peas


    While I have adapted well to losing a finger, there are still times when I automatically do something then realize; “Hey, this doesn’t work well anymore.”

    That happened to me yesterday when I was planting the peas in my garden.  For years I would hold peas in my left hand, then pick a pea up with my right hand and plant it.  I kept trying to do that yesterday, but every time I moved my left hand, peas would fall though the hole where my finger used to be.  You can see one on the ground; it fell when I was trying to take the photo.

    Of course, dropping a few peas is not really much of a problem, but its interesting how quickly a person forgets and falls into “automatic” even though things have changed.

  1. I guess you could try to use that to your advantage, if you held your left hand over the row to plant.
