Today you all have been a blessing, there is a thread on gardening, I looked but my eyes are too tired to keep looking, hopefully you see this.
I was feeling sorry that I haven't got to it nor really felt like doing it.  After seeing that thread I went and bought me some flowers and tomatoes to plant.  Yes, my hands hurt but planted them in the pots outside of my door.  I will tackle the tomatoes tomorrow for the patio.
Just praying the dogs will stay out of them, wacky dogs.
Thank you all...... smilewinkgrin

Yeah Kellie! Glad you got to the gardening. That is something I use to do big time. Now I plant in pots but that is still fun. Yes, you might feel some muscle pain but it was worth it. I haven't planted tomatoes but that is something I might try next spring. It is already 110 here-almost too hot for some of the plants.
This is my first year to grow herbs. I don't know if they can stand the heat. Good luck with your plants.

I do mostly pots these days, too. Pots that don't need moving! My daughter is digging up my little bitty garden for me. I haven't grown herbs before either, but it just so happens that I got some basil and chives this year.

My husband has been working on our garden. I wanted some beans so he planted a ton. I only wanted a few plants, don't want to have to pick every day. We have tomato plants, and squash and cucumbers. I also want to plant some sage. He planted sweet basil and lemon basil. I love fresh herbs. I want to get a rosemary plant so I have it for the winter. I love gardens, just don't have the energy to work in them.

Hugs, to everybody, Karen

Silly Me2, the thread is by Luvsminis re the gardening. Don't worry, you're not lost, you're among friends.
Kellie, Good for you!! Like a lot of the folks here, I'm not up to the gardening I used to do. Most of my plants go into pots, even my veggies and herbs. I also put my flowers into pots. I can't use the regular shovel anymore, so I scaled back and it stills looks beautiful. You are off to a good start, the veggies will be delicious and the flowers will be beautiful, bringing butterflies and birds to your yd. Sure to bring a smile to your face and your heart.
Have a great day.
God bless.  Alice.

I had a wildflower garden for a couple of years, was beautiful. But the weeds and Fibro. were not a good combination. So, I replanted my wildflowers in a bed by the road, killed all the weeds, put down pine needles and filled up my old collection of pots with flowers. Looks just as pretty and less work.
I struggle with FM,Raynauds Syndrome,gastroparesis, IBS and depression. I trust in God with all things. Been a tough journey and it's not getting any easier but thanks to God and my family I am not alone.
