Gardener ignores medical advice, reunites with garden.
Tuesday, 25 Nov 08 Overcast 19°C / 66°F
I’ve been in hospital for a few days for a surgical operation, and preparing to go in for a little while before that, so I’m well & truly behind on my garden journaling- which is a shame as I’ve missed noting lots and lots of first harvests! But hopefully will have time in the next few days to fill those in as I’m in full invalid mode, tucked up in bed.
Except that, of course, since I was kept in hospital a few days later than originally intended, and therefore longer than I’d prepared my garden for, the first thing I did when I got home was shuffle out into the garden to harvest a big haul of green beans plus two squash before they all got too mature to be edible. I did this despite recent surgical wounds and a general instruction to remain bed-bound and relatively immobile. You just can’t keep a gardener out of the garden, can you?
It’s only due to the fierce directions of my housemates that I was able to walk away from the tomato trellising that clearly needed doing, as well.
I have many kind offers of assistance for while I need it in the next few days and weeks while I get my strength back. I suspect I will be spending that goodwill on my garden: water in here! Mulch there! Trellis there! And the chances of me actually staying out of it myself are, well, minimal I reckon. I’ll try to be good, but it’s pure torture to be out of the garden at this time of year!
