I love gardening. I really do. Well, actually, I love the fresh vegetables, fruits, herbs and gorgeous flowers that are the result of my gardening. I am not actually a huge fan of the hoeing, weeding, gardening work or the gardening aches and pains that come along with it. Fall garden clean up is the worst.

Gardening Aches and Pains | Fall Garden Clean Up

When I work in the garden in the spring, I’ve had the whole winter off. Getting back out into the garden after the snow melts is something I look forward to. Gardening in the summer is exciting because everything is starting to grow and there are fresh fruits and vegetables and gorgeous blooms everywhere I look. It’s like a reward for all the time and effort I’ve put into it. Fall garden clean up is my least favorite part of gardening. There is nothing growing any longer and all I have to look forward to is spring, which in Vermont is about 6 months from now.

Fall garden clean up time is when you remove the dead plants, clean up and put away the stakes and tomato cages, till the soil to expose any bugs trying to over winter and basically make the garden healthy and ready for spring planting. We have several gardens around our two acres and it seems like the work is never done.

Fall clean up generally involves a lot of kneeling, reaching, bending, lifting and carrying. For my back, those are not good things. I generally spend the next 2 or 3 days sore and in pain which makes it hard to get anything done around the house or at work.

Thankfully the work for today is finally done. I’ll be back out again this weekend to work in a different garden bed.  I’m glad I have Advil Film-Coated and a cup of tea to relax after a long day of gardening. I’m not going to let my back pain stop me from having another productive day tomorrow.

Advil Film-Coated contains an ion core of ibuprofen sodium, a salt form of ibuprofen that is much more soluble in water than standard ibuprofen. It’s the newest innovation from Advil. Because they are more soluble, they dissolve fast, and can be absorbed into the body fast. That means faster pain relief so I can get back out there tomorrow. Nothing works faster.

  2. I tried my hand at doing a garden for the first time this summer. Let's just say I will be asking for help next summer so that I can reap bigger rewards next fall. Major brown thumb.
