our newest garden toolPosted: December 6, 2018 Filed under: SoCal Life 2 Comments
When we left Gilroy in May 2015 we left a lot of stuff behind: donated to charity or given to neighbors. Garden tools were among what we gave up, including our electric hedge trimmer. We’ve gotten by fine without it, though it’s meant a bit more manual work.
Recently, however, our neighbor expressed concern about the vines growing along our shared fence. Seems in the past she has had an unpleasant experience replacing a fence due to overgrowth. I thought about renting a hedge trimmer to handle the job, but I realized that by the time I paid all the rental fees I could buy one.
So I did.
I cut back the vines by the fence and whacked down the hedge on the other side of the house which I had previously attacked by hand.
A worthwhile purchase.
You are a good neighbor!!
Thank you, Tahoe Mom. I try. Though I can’t tell you how often the phrase from the Robert Frost poem pops into my mind, “Good fences make good neighbors.”
