I am paying for planting potatoes this morning . I keep telling myself that they will be good this summer.lol Not convincing enough . My neck on the rt side down my shoulder is hurting pulling, deep burning pain down to my elbow. I wish I could get some relief it stays at a 10 no matter what I do. With the Fentanyl patch I can't use any heat which heat was helping a little.I hope very one is having a better day .

Weezie12, I use to garden years ago. The past 5 years I'd go help my dad put up his crops, but he was too sick to have anything last year. As much as I use to love doing my own, I now buy from other local farmers, or buy frozen. I empathize with your pain. Rest and be assured, if you get the right sun & rain you'll be proudly harvesting your potatoes.

Weezie, I'm sorry you are in such pain. I wish there was something I could say to make it better.
FlappsyLady, I love your positive attitude and willingness to help and comfort others. Offering advise, encouragement and words that make us smile. You are a guardian angel right here on earth and I, for one, feel blessed that you are here. 💕

Just popped in to see what's happening. Weezie12 I understand what you mean - it would be nice to get some relief from meds. Will you be seeing your Dr soon? Worth discussing use of heat - it disrupts pain signals and I know that any respite is welcome.

I'm no gardener but I'm sure that if you do the work nature will do hers. Just share when you start harvesting your crops. 👌😉
