Happens all the time. I know I have to take it easy and I never do. Does that make me stupid or just crazy for gardening? Yes, I'm thinking both.
So, how did I get these aches and pains? Regular normal garden activities. I clipped this shrub, yanked out that weed, took wheelbarrow after wheelbarrow full of stuff to the compost pile only to come back and refill it with more stuff.
Oh, yes, and I planted 200 tulips using a bulb planter and my twisting hands. Ouch! I actually bruised the palms of my hands with that thing, and that was while wearing garden gloves, but it had to be done. Who else was going to kneel on the ground for five hours and do it? It wasn't going to be Tom who bought the plants. He would just dig one huge hole with his backhoe and dump them all in, cover it up with soil and be done. ~Hmm, always thought he was smarter than me.
But anyway, I'm telling you, I get a workout out there. It usually takes two-three days to recover from one of my days in the garden. I might even lose some weight out in the garden.
super models in the garden? Or gardening supermodels? Perhaps I was out in the sun too long. Yes, that might be it!
