    Having my humble beginnings in BYH, where there is a journal forum, I have been hesitant to start a journal type thread here at TEG...
    OVER THAT NOW!
    Notice the cool lilac of the text, how wishywashy can one get in making a declarative statement....
    In all my interior dialogues and subsequent re edits never did I come up with this but here it is:

    I have a booboo.

    Back in late June I slid the couch over. Wrong. The MRI shows a torn disc with complete extrusion (it all squishied out) and it is an owiee. 'Sposed to hear from the surgeon sometime this week.
    More important to me is the offer I made to fellow gardeners:
    https://www.theeasygarden.com/threa...-locals-of-locoyokel.20604/page-6#post-302048
    The terms may have changed but the spirit of giving is the same.
    I also have posted this on other media:

    Due to an injury I have been really late harvesting my last batch of rabbits. (Born 3-13-17) Finally felt spunky enuff today and would love to trade goods. I have a package of kidneys and livers, fresh today, 11.45 oz. for the cooks out there. The three roasters are also available, two over 4#, one 5.7#. Very fat rabbits, very clean meat, won't be put in freezer for 48 hrs, just chillin for now. I'm not trying to sell my rabbit meat, I just really could use some help right now.
    Would love to trade for small bale grass hay/orchard mix (no alfalfa) or? If anyone is interested in helping me with my rabbits (3 does, 1 buck and 3 juniors) this fall and winter I would love to share them and my backyard experience. My does are too heavy for me to carry to my buck, want to raise rabbits without the expense? I also have great "compost starter" for home gardeners without access to homemade poo.
    I really don't want to throw those chitlins to the chickens, any help would be appreciated and anyone wanting to learn about backyard rabbits is welcome. Located close to ID/WA stateline.

    I try not to complain much, sorry for the WAH factor but wanted to let my "homeys" know whats up and what's available.

    I hope you can find someone nearby that will pitch in and help. Back injuries are nothing to mess with. Keep us posted on your progress.

    Thank you. I am trying to not do too much, finally harvesting the rabbits have me opting for 'script meds right now, not my fave thing to do. Funny: I never used to have a problem poppin' one for the fun, now that I need them I refuse to take 'em... go figure.:confused:

    You are not a wimp. A lot of us have aches and pains we fight through but that's a lot more than a simple ache or pain. Get it taken care of. And maybe you are wiser now than you used to be when having fun.

    Can you chat with the high school FFA teacher about someone taking care of your rabbits? Or a 4-H leader? You might find someone to take the rabbits and care for them until you are back on your feet. Or work out something else.

    That's a good idea! I wouldn't let my bunnies go anywhere due to biohazards but as a 4-H sponsor with proper protocol? Could work!
    OK, what song was that? "Wish I didn't know now what I did know then?" Sounds so much better than "Been there, done that, cut the sleeves off the T-shirt." (my lil' spin there)

    Rabbit poo makes BLACK GOLD, any gardener that has been lucky enough to get their hands on some knows this. If it was possible I'd be there in a flash to give you a hand, Any gardeners close by and see your offer should be beating down your door in short order. Hope you have a fast recovery.

    Just a thought, do you have a garden club near you, you could ask there.

    My garden club is TEG, just a keystroke away... love you all!
    (I will check in with the local extension office later today if I can't get local help.)

    Oooh @Gardening with Rabbits !!!

    Every day I think how mobility problems make me feel old. Back: 4 slipped discs, stenosis, sciatic nerves shot on one side, weakened on the other. Each year is worse but I have been limping since early middle age. Stumble over my own toes and wobble on the slightest uneven ground.

    When I reach say 85+, I might be a whole lot safer at getting around than most people ... because I have had so much practice being awkward! Trying to look at the bright side ;).

    If you can get it fixed, it would likely be best to do so, @LocoYokel . And, the pain pills ... anti-inflammatories may help heal. They can be a little hard on the stomach but they aren't just for deadening and I have not heard of addiction problems.

    Oooh @Gardening with Rabbits ...
