Well guess what? I got my gardening done. Or pretty much done.
Chris was puttering around outside yesterday evening. He was supposed to be doing one small thing then he was going to come back inside let me know he was done and then we’d go out and start working on putting compost and mulch down on the garden beds.
Well he puttered for two hours and by the time he finally came back inside it was at least 8 pm. So that’s when I went out and started working in the garden.
We returned inside at 3:30 am!
Yes I am a midnight gardener. Yes I am an extreme gardener.
The only problem was that when I took my shoe off I could barely walk on my left foot. It felt like what I’d assume walking on a toothache would feel like. Every step brought tears to my eyes.
Remember I said I’d injured both my feet in the past and that I thought the humidity was finally making them ache? Broken bones, sprains, strains and oh yeah a torn posterior tibialis tendon count as some of the past injuries. So the foot that was hurting like it’s never hurt before was the one that had had the torn tendon a few years ago. That was a gardening accident from overuse! I literally ripped the tendon while planting roses for 14 hours and didn’t know how bad I’d hurt myself until two days later!
My back hurts too … and yeah my stomach/abdomen is still aching as well.
Who says gardening is passive???
I guess you could say I’m a lump of pain today.
But the gardens done!
