When pulling weeds, I sit on my rolling office chair, and have my laundry basket next to me to dump the weeds in. I have a cotton rope tied to the handle so I can drag the cart behind me. I use a 33 gallon black garbage bag in my laundry basket so when I'm done all I have to do is pull out the bag.

Great idea @Monetwwqi! I like the idea of a weeding basket that follows you around the beds. Green Grin!

Sounds good. Especially the sitting down part. I like it.

Sit down gardening is about the only gardening I can do these days. Good days I can stand up maybe 10 minutes or so but after that, even my two canes can't keep me up right. Luckily, my Weedwhacker is adjustable so I can make the handle really short. This way I can use it while sitting. At least I can go around the edges.

I have a patch of old fashion violets, the ones with the heart shaped leaves, not the Johnny jump ups. I try to get my chair as close as possible so I can pull out the grass that invaded the patch. That's easier said than done because the violets grow near the long branches of my rose bushes.

Last year when my nephew came to cut my lawn, he forgot about the violets. Oops! My violets love me. It's not the first time they've been mowed down, but they always come back. Actually people are surprised when they see how big the patch gets because my house faces west and they get full sun all summer from about noon till dusk. They keep telling me violets don't live in 100+ degree heat. Of course, they haven't told my violets that.
