Not so much a 'proper' gardener, in my case, as a hard-up one with a fair bit of space to fill, TT. I've enjoyed it, though, especially as nearly everything I've grown has been perennial and won't have to be grown again next year. Sorry your hands are so bad. Tendonitis has flared up in my ankles again, but anti-inflammatory ointment helps quite a bit.
Still doing all the cooking but am letting them go out by themselves so I'm not having to turn to when I'm already shattered, and I'm doing fairly simple meals. No showing off involved, just getting by. Had a quiet cup of tea in the garden this morning and enjoyed the peace, but it is belting with rain this afternoon.
Should have realised it was gangsta, not gangster. I looked up a definition of this word. Here it is.
'A sociopathic member of the inner-city underclass, known primarily for being antisocial and uneducated. Also known for ready access to illegal drugs and weapons, and staggeringly poor marksmanship.'
And I was flattered!!!
