Gardners, are you ready?

 

It may not seem like it on some days, but spring is coming! 

Every year, we see many gardeners who are unable to get out in their flower and veggie beds because of back, neck, arm, and, thumb, or knee pain. 

Here are some helpful hints to help keep you in your garden on the rare nice days that we have:

-Avoid bending for extended periods. 

-Get a kneeling pad out and use it! 

-Some people do very well with a stool also.

-Keep the things you need close at hand.  This reduces the amount of reaching and twisting that you need to do!

-Keep your back straight while mowing the yard and using equipment.

Still having pain that’s keeping you and your green thumb inside?
