  • I've got a Ryobi battery-powered trimmer and it works just great. I bought an extra battery for swap-out. The strange thing is that I use less cutting line than with my gas one. I was always having starting and/or keep running problems the gas-powered one; eventually, the lines would end up leaking.

  • A gas trimmer is too heavy for me to work with too so I have a plug in electric trimmer which I paid $13.00 for at the end of the season years ago. It is good for detail work near the house. I also have a battery trimmer which lasts about as long as I do for heavier work and does a good job at a distance from the house.When the battery dies we both take a break. All is well until the humidity takes over and I find so many other things that I would rather do with my time......Reading your blog is one of them......

  • Our batteries never lasted, of course I didnít either. I have several electric, all with little things wrong. Deb will be happy if she can just cut near the house.

    Thirteen tomatoes and more seem to pop up as I bring them out into the sun.

  • Hmmm, 18 tomtoms up this morning. Funny that about 10 pots planted one day later have nothing yet, but they are in a different container that does not have a plastic cover like the other one.

    Speaking of plastic cover, the sprouts are getting too tall to keep it on. Starting to bend them.

  • Hiatus from gardening due to poison ivy. I finally broke down and went to the doctor yesterday.....My grass cutting will be on hold until my strength comes back... I am highly allergic and it systemically took over giving me an infection and fever....Itching on the inside is never a good thing....Be careful out there.....

  • Holy holy mackerel!! Hope you can take steroids and if so got a good dose.

    I got an annoying itch on my knee but could not be poison ivy. Think it was my first tick bite of the year since we found a tick on the car seat. Cats and dogs donít get them but I do.

    With the antihistamines I take for allergies, bites and even poison Ivy seem to be controllable. So sorry to hear it.
