Just read "Gardening for a Lifetime" by Sydney Eddison. A nice read and several ideas for cutting the workload as we age. Since I just started my garden at 70, (this year) I wish I had read this book before. One of her points is to concentrate on shade rather than sun perennials. She makes a point that weeds are sun plants and weeds in the shade are puny and can be discouraged with mulch. I've worked this summer to establish a sun bed (that's a long story) and now I think I'll just concentrate on shade--I have plenty in my yard. For MTPS I'll be looking for shade plants.
