Lots of people see a brown spider and automatically assume it's a Brown Recluse. This link has information to help identify the brown spiders in your life.

Exercise different muscles.
Posted on May 9, 2018 7:21 PM

Some folks get a bit out of shape over the winter then they dive into gardening and get rather sore. Or injured.

This year (after a brutally long, cold winter) I started slowly, doing half-bends or half-squats or partial-lunges to pull a few weeds each day. I gradually added minutes and was able to say...no pain!! After doing this for several weeks, I was ready to move on to using tools.

I found a handy chart to show which common garden tools work which group of muscles. If you alternate using the tools you can build your muscles gradually and hopefully have less discomfort.

I found the image here:
https://www.1001gardens.org/20...

The image is not mine but I suspect it did also not belong to 1001gardens either as I have seen the same image elsewhere and the tools were labeled by name, not by the part of the body each exercised.
If anyone knows the origin of the image, please let me know.
