Ah, but I feel for you. My garden is my delight in the warm
months, but my whole body sings to me if I try to do what
I'd like in it.
I get up early morning, stretch my body out, and have a
cuppa while walking about the garden. I can plan what
needs doing the most that way, so I can do as much of
that until it's time to quit.
We have raised beds, and the being able to sit on the
edge of the bed while working helps me a lot.
I take frequent breaks and walk around, talk to the
runner-ducks and dogs, put my feet in the River, or
have a bit of apple or banana. I stretch while I do this,
and it gives me a bit more time before I have to stop.
When it's really hot, a good dip in the River helps to
cool and soothe those muscles and make a little
more garden time available.
I promise myself a good stretch-out flat when I'm
done, and do that too. I try to not take too much of
the nonaspirin type stuff; hard on the belly. Soothing
tea and positive thought is the best I've found.
Good luck and green thoughts!
Gardening with asthma and arthritis, but lots of
verve and happiness!
