Heat can cause a big hold back factor in gardening. I garden when the sun goes down. Does anyone have suggestions for people with disabilities that want to keep gardening?

Shelly, I am pretty involved with MS.  My sister-in-law has it and I work at a rehab hospital promoting our MS program.  I will also be walking for MS on Saturday, April 30th, in my home town here in Maine.  I totally understand.  For my sister-in-law, she loves her gardens.  I have just introduced her to this site.  Please feel free to friend her:  Kara.  She may respond and may not, but I am sure you guys could share your love for gardening.
