Wednesday 2 May 2018 – Teen’s Blog

Well it has been a very long while since I last blogged on gardenclickers and I am wondering where to start.

I have been busy working for myself as a gardener these past years and it has been going well.  Last year was a bit different as I lost one of my customers to bad manners (on her part) and another through the horrible Big C.  Then I went and slipped a disc in my back again in November and this year has been a bit slow to get going due to the latter keeping me from gardening.  Let’s put it this week I spent a good few weeks lying on pillows as I couldn’t sit, stand or walk for long.

Fortunately I didn’t need surgery this time and worked it out for myself.  Still a little niggly but getting there.  Honestly you would think I would learn by now!  If you ever need help with injuries look out for Bob and Brad on Youtube/Twitter/Facebook.  Miracle workers and funny too.  They are a pair of Physical Therapists and they helped me out quite a bit with there daily videos.

Now I have the daunting task of getting my customers’ gardens back on track and also my own garden.  Put it this way there are a lot of weeds.

I have sown some carrots twice now and the first lot are starting to appear.  I also did Tomatoes and Chillies earlier in the year but when there was that hot weather not too long ago I forgot to open my mini greenhouse and they frazzled.  Although two chilli plants and two tomatoes just about survived, they are a bit slow in recovering so I have sown some more seeds.  No sign of them as yet but fingers crossed.

I have also sown Cabbage, Courgette, Butternut Squash, Cucumber and Garlic Chives.  Only the cabbage have appeared so far.

    Sounds like a splendid start Tina. I’m sorry you slipped a disc, again! How on Earth?!
    Anyway, good luck with the Recovery, a full recovery! :good:
    Gertie’s Garden is the usual wilderness and the weather has affected it too, but it’s amazing how the plants recover well too :-) :
    I bet yours will do fine good: :rose:

    Good heavens, Teen,. I do think you like to live dangerously. Don’t know if I would seek work as a gardener with a wonky back – but I suppose it might have the advantage of building up the muscles in the back to support the vertebrae. Go safely……
