Planting Onions!

Planting Onions!

I do not eat onions!! I have never liked them.

But with Ray's knee shot I had to help him plant his onions. 100+ of them, Vidalia Onions!

Bend down and shove an onion in the ground, straighten up, take one step; bend down and shove an onion in the ground, straighten up, take one step; repeat 100 times!

Next day I was sore in several new places! The *wings* of the thighs (outer/upper thigh) and behind and above the knee.

So now I have decided to plant 100 onions daily! But now it is touch toes, touch shoulders, reach for the sky; touch toes, touch shoulders, reach for the sky; repeat 100 times.
I am only up to 50 at a time but I do them twice! And so far I still feel stiff the next day so I am still working a few new muscles!

The old exercises we did as kids in school really did do something good for us!

    Good for you for incorporating those moves into your day. I also hate onions!! I will eat cooked leeks but that is it! I think I might try your hundred toe touches daily myself. LOL

    How I wish I had the space for a garden. I used to help my Dad with his and I still remember the taste of that first tomato fresh and warm from the sun.
    I shall have to try these exercises. I remember doing them in school.

    I love Vidalia onions!!! Wish I could plant them here in NJ, but hey, there are lots of other benefits to living here (like being the butt of the late night jokes).
