is very satisfying work that I greatly enjoy, especially when working
together with clients who share my enthusiasm for growing and
maintaining gardens, whether ornamental, naturalized, or wild habitats
that need help defending against invasive species. However, age
and three years spending every spring, summer and fall digging, hauling
heavy loads, spending hours on my hands and knees weeding, contorting
my body to get inside overgrown shrubs to prune them correctly, etc.,
finally became too physically challenging for me. I've decided
to move on to an occupation less punishing to my legs, arms, hands,
Thanks to all my great gardening customers, friends and other
supporters for helping Your Part-Time Gardener keep going as long as it
has. Stay tuned for the next chapter!
I'll keep the (now archival) web
site up for a while, in case anyone wants to read the posts
again before I take the site down for good.
