hopefully back for a while.

Post  johnp on 4/30/2014, 11:15 am

I got home from the Hosp. sat. night after two days spent in the throes of a large far away hosp. getting a new knee. This is the second one but it's even less fun. I won't even go into the deigned coverage, the preapproved but denied drugs and the endless questions. The garden was dry but OK when we checked on Sunday. The weather is cold, very windy and not conducive to putting plants outside. We have been struggling but so far I have only killed three tomatoes swinging my walker over the trays on the floor. I misjudged the swing and hit the stems with one of the wheels and the damage was done. The wind has taken it's toll on several others but they are not dead yet. Many of my plants are to large for their containers but I will not be able to repot and will just go with what we have and do the best we can. I am going to try to make the journey to the garden and greenhouse this afternoon to see what has come up. We are going to plant outside if I can a week from Sat. which is early, but I don't know what else to do with these overgrown plants. We will see.

Good luck! There will always be something else to plant if what you've got gets damaged, too. It's not late in the season, and even late in the season, there's still stuff to plant. You'll get to where you need to be with your garden in time, at your own pace.

Thanks for the support, this really sucks. With my wife's help ( all her help) we are staying even. The weather is supposed to warm so starting today all my plants are out on the lawn for the day. Between us we can water the garden and greenhouse and keep things going. My peas are up as well as the kale, radishes, carrots and maybe chard. Leeks are happy so far.

The home health care PT comes this morning so the recovery starts. If I did not have to take the horrible pain pills it would be bearable. Thanks again.

John, It sounds like you are progressing. DH and I had to help our 78 year old neighbor as she recovered from a knee re-replacement. Everything but personal care and PT. I'm glad your wife is there to help during your recovery.
