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.
