This year we decided to plant our garden in pots on our patio instead of in the ground behind our house. The location of pots has just as much sun, and is much easier for us to maintain. There is a water source. It's just all easier.
The downside of doing this kind of gardening is moving all the dirt necessary, filling and moving the pots then planting. Then there's the clean up. I've managed to move all the dirt, plant everything, fill the pots and plant everything and then put the pots where I want them. Unfortunately now there's too much pain to finish cleaning up. Hopefully I can do that tomorrow.
I'm having a consult tomorrow at the pain clinic so I can have epidural injections in my back again next Wednesday. 2 of the 3 injections I got about 14 months ago worked well, so I have a lot of hope that these will work as well. Unfortunately it means that I will miss 2 days of work for one job and 1 day of another. But it's so worth it to get rid of the back pain.

    I wish that I could garden! I live in an apartment and I am going to try to grow some herbs! Hope your back is feeling better soon!

    The clean up can wait until you can do it, so please don't worry about that.

    I pray that the injections do the job in elimating the back pain you deal with.

    God bless!

    I always say I'd like to try the pot gardening route. Haven't had much luck with the "in-ground" method. But right now it's STILL too cold here to plant and put anything outside..... frost last two mornings. Hope it warms up soon. Good luck with your gardening and relieving your back pain. emoticon
