Can't go out to the garden alone

I just wiped out a third of all our zucchini plants.

"Help, I've fallen and I can't get up"  just played out in our backyard.

Fortunately, Husband RJ came to help.  Unfortunately, I had no strength in my legs or knees.  I told him to grab my waist or butt and pull.

But I outweigh the old man by about 20 pounds and he couldn't manage it.  I pitched forward from a squat into the zucchinis.

Finally he planted his legs and grabbed my arms and pulled straight up.  My legs were no help.

I bawled out loud for a second or two.  Then we picked up the mess and I went in the house to make supper.
