my new workout equiptment and workout facility


this picture showed up on facebook recently 
i am not sure who to attribute it to

this week i have been working on a tool grant for our community garden
a lot of our tools are old real old and wore out
some are over 12 years old
some are broken
some are just wore out
some are bent 
some are missing parts
some lean to the left
some lean to the right
its time to replace them with new good quality stuff

so every tool in that picture above needs replaced

we need some new outdoor workout equipment

i know folks who spend money on a gym membership
i spend mine on a community garden membership
around $30 a month for two plots
in return
i get access to all of this much as you want to use free exercise equipment
and lots of organic fresh vegetables and fruits
and a place to meditate 

i also monitor my steps on my iphone
on garden days i tend to get between 5000-10000 steps
add to that all that use of the garden exercise equipment 
keeps me healthy physically
and mentally

i may be in the best  physical shape i have been in since i moved here

plus we have a free vegetable and fruit bar
yesterday i ate a couple handfuls of sweet peas off the vine
a  couple of satsuma oranges
several leaves of lettuce and kale and arugula
a couple of sprigs of broccoli
a couple of bananas from the banana trees
a couple of strawberries

you cant get any better exercise location than this 

its all outdoors

no wonder farmers live a long time
