    Hi Vivi I found these crutches come sticks whatever great for pointing at things is stores / super markets … and most of all to stop elevator doors from closing just as you get within a few inches of the darn doors … i have also poked a few unsuspecting people whilst pointing at things… ( lifting the crutch smacking someone around the ear saying Oh look over there i've found it on hearing someone shouting Bloody Hell you need that stick shoving where the sun doesn't shine Ohhhhhhhhhhhh see ya blessing …….now…….Ed

    Vivi, If you put a chair there you could use your good foot to push the fork in.

    You must be SO relieved that you’re able to walk around there again. Hope the progress continues, and you’ll soon be back down there digging it over for those spring time sowing!

    Vivi, while I recovered from surgery I’d sit in a chair to work in the garden. It might be a little easier for when you harvest things like root veggies to sit in a chair.

    Awww yay to being back in the garden. I am so glad you are doing so wonderfully with healing. i am planting my broad beans aka Fava beans this morning i got from a dear friend. They have soaked for four days and are just sprouting out and i am preping a lovely seed sharing pkg for my brother in law who just started a veggie garden this year. I so love having my garden too. It really is a lucky thing.

    Vivi, you look so excited about being back on the allotment. It's been several weeks since I've been in my garden. Everything is frozen here in Nebraska. The ground some times freezes to a depth of two feet during the Winter months. Temperatures are very cold from now on until the end of February. There's no digging in the ground until at least March or later depending on the year. Today the high will be 25F (-4C) and the predicted low for tonight will be 14F (-10). Those are fairly normal temperatures for this time of the year. Any thing left in the ground will be in the ground until the Spring thaw in March.

    This is the time when seed start planning is done. Next week the seed catalogs will be scoured to find the right things to start in the seed starting station. It's kind of messy there right now so a good clean is in order before any thing else. In another couple months that area of the basement will be thriving with life.

    Have a great Christmas and I'm sure we will be seeing another video before the New Year. It's was good to see you back on the allotment. Be well my London cyber gardening friend.

    It's great that you are back in the garden. Just don't overdo it. I wish I could go out to my garden and harvest some fresh veg, but we have several inches of snow here in Vermont. Take care.

    So glad you made it to your garden. Love the new scarecrow! Wishing you a very Merry (and toasty) Christmas. Looks like the roasted parsnips will be yummy!

    It is so hot here 40oC+ that it is a similarly downtime in the garden. Looking forward to milder weather in a few days when a fresh southerly blows through. Might be cool enough to cook a roast dinner for xmas.

    The sugar plum fairy on crutches….Hi Vivi. Merry Christmas. Perhaps you could use your foot or the crutch to press down on the parsnips.

    I know the feeling, my home is in the garden but yet every day starts out with me going to the greenhouse then the potting shed and then the gardens even in the middle of January. I would be lost without my gardens.. As your camera panned the allotments my OCD was on high alert looking at some of the really messy overgrown sites. But then everyone has their personal garden style and I am a anal retentive type I guess πŸ™‚
