I wasn’t a block from home, enjoying the new set up, when I pedaled backwards for the fun of it. My toe clipped the bottom of the front plastic Blumels fender. Snapped like it had been waiting all its life to become two. I hate breaking things and I hate breaking irreplaceable vintage things more. I can get Blumels on eBay, and I probably will, but this pair is gone. Bummer. I walked the bike home, removed the broken fender and then set out for the garden again.
I hadn’t been since Sunday and it had rained a fair amount, so it didn’t take long to stuff the Cannondale panniers. I brought home a huge cabbage, twenty cucumbers, green beans, cherry tomatoes and a big bag of mustard greens.
The kimchi pancakes rocked. If you haven’t, you should.
