One Handed Gardening???

Unable to do much in the garden we took the chance to go and visit the Grandies. PoppyDoc helped set up their new garden beds which they will plant up with some of Nannie's seedlings and Strawberries. Meanwhile they had a lovely time in their new sandpit.

Well when I said life was chaotic in the last post, gardening is on a go slow at the moment as I have my left arm in a cast after breaking my wrist! Luckily I did manage to get a few jobs done before it happened. Do you know how much you use both hands to do things????
