After several hours of yard work yesterday, it suddenly dawned on me that i’m not a gardener. I’m sure it has dawned on most of the neighborhood too. The day started out good enough. I set up some cages for the tomato plants. I set out a trap for the wasps. I even dug some trenches so that the water in the garden would flow down to the end. Then my wife asked me to trim back the bushes in front of the house.When i got the trimmers out, i noticed they wouldn’t trim more than an inch or two. But we needed a foot or more trimmed back. Well … i guess i should have realized the chainsaw probably wasn’t the best solution. It seemed like a good idea at the time. It got the job done – the bushes are trimmed way back now. Unfortunately, they’re also UGLY as #@$. so basically i took about 2 minutes to ruin a 60 year old bush, that might recover in about 5 years. sorry!
