With a new hip, I'm able to get around again. I can't quite do some of the things I was able to do before--like the almost-splits I could still do from my karate days. The doc warned me to be careful with the stretching because my bone is still growing around the metal of the new joint. I could dislocate it.
But I am able to garden again which really makes me happy. I write best in the morning, so it's nice to go out in the afternoon and mess with it the lovely raised bed hubby made for me.
I'm currently growing cooler weather plants--Romaine lettuce, sweet onions, red cabbage, iceberg lettuce (for grandpa), and spinach. I harvested some of the spinach yesterday. Yum!
What do you do for fun when you're not writing
(or whatever your main gig is)?
Glad you are out gardening. Raised beds are the best.ReplyDelete
Main gig? Guitar, of course!
Of course guitar!Delete
So lovely and practical!ReplyDelete
It's so nice being married to someone so crafty as my man. :)Delete
Glad you're able to do more since your hip surgery. Loved seeing your vegetable garden. I have some lettuce growing too.ReplyDelete
When I was a kid we always had the yucky canned spinach. I hated it. I'd never considered eating it raw until I was an adult--and found I loved it. I hope your lettuce does well!Delete
Being in the garden is wonderful! Very cool about the raised bed too! For me it drawing, but I do like to tool around the garden too.ReplyDelete
It's nice to have artistic outlets besides our writing.Delete
That is a seriously raised bed, that is. Must save a ton of strain on the hip and the back!ReplyDelete
Way to get back on your feet. heheheReplyDelete
Love the garden, it looks much better than mine.
