The wife was out doing flower gardening which she spends many hours doing. This is the first time she cut her bare hand on a three inch broken glass hidden in the soil. Luckily for her it was only minor but could have been so much worse had she severed a muscle or tendon requiring surgery.
I'd highly recommend people use small garden tools like scoops and rakes for these small projects instead of one's bare hands.
From now on this will most certainly be the case for her.
