It's like doing pilates while at the same time weightlifting and marching. blink.gif

I think I may have hurt something, but I'll know for sure tomorrow.

So with the help of my son, we moved a rose bush which grew long branches with the biggest thorns I ever did see. It was attacking us as we walked up to the house.

I also put out three small pumpkins (two orange and one white) on top of my large clay pot, so let's see if they grow legs and walk away.

It can be quite exhausting but enjoyable, I hope it's no major gardening injury blink.gif

I know my back is stiff now and I hope it doesn't lock up tonight or tomorrow. Right now, I will keep moving and stretching it. I know I should not have lifted anything, but I did.

The perp who got your flower will be visiting again, this time for the Squash.

There's plenty of room for all God's creatures. Right next to the mashed potatoes!

We'll see Bohica, and that is why I did not decorate them...just in case.

Hmm, maybe I should stake them, then stack them.

I approve that you approve my message, failboat chuckle.gif and that's why so much of the gardening work is left to the last minute, because I have to wait for help...when they feel like it.

Actually, that's what I'm mulling over in my mind now. I don't have the strong back any more to keep up with the heavy garden work, so my next house has to be an RV. chuckle.gif

Gardening is really hard work, tedious and back breaking. But the effort sure is worth it! I hope it's minor US.

I just planted over 100 Garlic, I've been pretty lucky with the stuff in the past few seasons.
I still have about 20 potato plants in the ground, they've been yielding about 6-10 full sized spuds per plant.
About a dozen Parsnips still in-ground.
I still get the occassionally handful of Black Rasberries, but the birds usually beat me to it.

This Fall I picked up about a ton of leaves, it's great for mulch and also a good (Carbon) additive to the compost pile.

Yes, gardening is a lot of work, but the rewards are great.

There's plenty of room for all God's creatures. Right next to the mashed potatoes!
