Sort of new to this group, there may be a sub-group I don’t know about. I love to garden – not all aspects of it, of course. But mostly it’s fun. Growing raspberries ( a true challenge in SC), blackberries, blueberries, currants, figs, many vegetables, and lots and lots of fragrant shrubs, flowers, clematis varieties, etc. After initial arthroscopic knee surgery (useless), followed by TKR almost a year ago, I am hoping to hear from other equally engaged gardeners how to best deal with/ work around the knee issue. I’m over-stressing my back, but so far I’m more concerned with all the plants I need to either dig up and toss, or dig up and move, this fall. Both knee surgeries were Oct/Sep. of previous years, so I’m 2 years behind the curve.
Basically hoping for any suggestions for the best way to deal with the limitation. Knee pads are often not an option due to dense plantings. Would love to hear from other back yard grubbers.
