More Work on Lady Jan's Garden

My daughter helped me weed inbetween my pavers,
and they had gotten really weedy too!
The weedy pavers run in front of my garden, and it was the
only thing I got done yesterday besides the laundry.
Unfortunately it really hurt my back moving
the paver out of the way, so today I went to
Wal-mart and bought some Tylenol. It helped,
so did the massage that my husband gave me.

My squash are all tucked into bed now (crook neck and zuccinii), but I had to put them to bed without any water.
I will be hooking up their drip admitters tomorrow.

I just got too tired today. Posted by Picasa

Sometimes what yo think is enough is really a little too much.

Take care of yourself please.

Hi Ann,

I know it might not seem like it, but I am pacing myself. It just the pavers were heavy, and I didn't get my daughter to help until I had half of them done and had already hurt myself.

I need to call on help a little sooner, and not take on too big of a project or work too fast. I'm just too use to working by myself.

Having a bad back is just something I have to deal with.

Lady Jan~

P.S. Thank you for your concern.

Hi Janice ~~I am sorry that you hurt your back. It doesn't take much when you have a bad back (as I do too) but
pavers seem tp be too heavy. Glad that your daughter helped.
Thanks for leaving comments, my leaves are still waiting to be rakes up when it fines up. It has been so cold here today that I thought we might get snow
That doesn't happen here but the mountains must be getting some. It was 1 degree celsius when I woke up and "warmed up" to 3 before I got up.
Take care Janice, I hope your back is better soon. Cheers, Merle.

I think Lady Jan should be known as Lady Garden Jan... :))) that is something else!

as for J's asparagus chopping... it's just various workers that Sally and Richard employ. you find a lot of low paid jobs here are taken by Eastern Europeans, and in Ireland too. they get better wages here in the UK than at home...

sound familiar?

Good job on the weeding. The path looks great. So sorry to hear about the back though. Gotta take care of it - we only get one, eh?

Hi Merle,

Thank you for you concern, and my back is better today.

Wow, your neck of the woods sounds c-o-l-d, burr. Stay warm, and don't worry too much about them leaves they'll wait till your up to raking them.

Hi Ipodmomma,

Yeah either change the name of this blog or get me a new one--but that would make it five that I would have. H-mm, maybe not. Anyway gardening is what I do at home, so it still works.

Yeah,it does sound familure especially since I live in agriculture central! Madera is right on the old 99 the agriculture corridor.

Hi Sarah,

Thank you. I'm trying to but with so much to get done, even with the help my back still get hurt. I will rest my back once my garden is in. Then I'll probably collasps!

Lady Jan~
