Still here–I think. And more coming up. — 2 Comments

  1. My tuppenceworth [for whatever worth that is] – I bought a power hedge trimmer and lived to regret it. It’s brilliant for the first while but it is amazing how heavy it becomes after a while, particularly on the long-reach areas. I since got myself one of those battery powered jobbies and it is brilliant. It’s about a quarter the weight, almost silent and the charge is more than enough for a good session’s trimming.

    Just a thought.

    • Grandad – I humbly confess that I’ve killed myself swinging that new trimmer around. If the damn hedge was of a manageable size it wouldn’t have been so bad but it isn’t. !00 feet long and over 5 feet wide in the majority of it so I can’t cut the whole top from one side. The kicker is, the hedge is near 6 feet tall on one side and over 6 feet tall on the other (figure that out*) so only one half of the top is trimmed.

      *Okay, so the ground is 18 inches lower on the neighbor’s side of the hedge. Same difference.

      I shall no sally force with painter’s ladder and manual clippers and attempt to finsih the top of the damn thing. Then I will burn it down.
