BRUISE

Posted on December 4, 2012 at 4:32pm 14 Comments

Hello

Does anyone get alot of bruises?  I tend to get them but they disappear within a week.  I was told as long as they come and go it was ok.  My concern is I've had one on my lower right leg and it was dark.  I've had it about a week but today I noticed it was bigger and red.  I have an appointment next week.

  Happy Birthday Rachel !

Rachel, your photos worked! I see that you have three small ones to keep out of the garden. LOL!! When I say raised bed, I am talking about using landscape timbers to make the raised bed. Unless they would not jump up, I am not sure that they would stay out using the timbers. If you were to use them and some chicken wire with some stakes, that might keep them out. Just an idea.

Question: Would a small fence help? That with a raised bed would probably do the trick. What kind of pooches do you have?

At 9:38am on February 4, 2013, Cisco said…

Rachel, the question is what kind of vegetables are you growing that you need a raised bed?

That's funny Rachel. Karma is real :)

Hahaha, aren't we the gracious losers (those crappy Patriots).
