To those who believe that gardening is not a form of exercise I challange you to do the following:
Carry 12 large bags of garden soil up and down the hill, 5 bags of cow manure, 6 bags of rocks. After you are done with that, squat and pick up one bag at a time depositing it into a planter. Then, go dig a trench for a retaining wall. After that, do some planting yoga to stretch all of the muscles you just used.
I hurt. That is all. Even my fingers are too tired to type. But in a few weeks I will be making salads with organic, home grown vegetables. don’t worry, I’ll share if you ask nicely.
