Comments On - Warning: Gardening May Cause Injuries

Hi, Rick.
No eggs on the sidewalks...yet. Have to wait for late July, early August for that. And, yes, I get to Plant world once in a while. Davis is almost gone now. Selling the lot they've been on for years. Another legacy lost.

Hi David,

Yep, toting bricks is tough on us geezers. Hopefully you've got a hot tub and a masseuse that makes house calls. Best of luck!

Rick, I must admit to stitches, pain, and embarrassment as well. I can't tell you how many times people I'm working with will say, "Did you know you are bleeding"? I didn't even know I'd been hurt. I figure those folks that don't have a stitch or two and bleed a little aren't doing much are they? Hopefully your finger will heal up quickly and be better than ever. I'm setting concrete blocks as a foundation for a retaining wall for a backyard patio so my pain is just plain old body pain at the end of the day. How'd I get this old? Oh, well, just keep on keeping on. Don't you think?

Hi Bruce,

Ha! Well, I guess I'm a serious gardener then. I can't remember a day when I didn't bleed while working in the garden. Lots of my construction projects have a little blood smudge somewhere on the back.

How's life in Las Vegas? Frying eggs on the sidewalk yet? Do you ever go to Plant World nursery? Or Davis nursery?

So sorry to hear about your accident. Yes, these things do happen when we are gardening. I've long since lost count of the number of stitches and broken fingers I've had. I've heard it said that it isn't really serious gardening unless some of the fertilizer is your own blood.
