I'm severely visually impaired and have an inoperable injury to my lower spine that makes bending or stretchng extremely painful. I was medically retired from work in 2006. I moved into this place July 2010 and am still sorting boxes - but the garden (what there is of it) is my main interest.
sigh, I was sort of hoping for something about half the size of Epping Forest, but at least this is my "starter for ten" - two metres "deep" in one part, three metres in the rest - tiny strip of dirt round the paving. Still, that's the challenge, to make the best use of what there is.
I used to say that I woudn't kill for a garden, but I might consider committing GBH! now the GBH is being done to me by the work I'm doinng in the garden, but I wouldn't stop for anything. I don't think I could stop even if I wanted to - I'm a gardener, full stop. The fact that I've never had a garden before just means that I was a gardenless gardener.
