The hedge is finally done. I started around mid-September. There was no activity for about week in the middle due to rain, and I finished on October 15. Of course, my work day is not very long. I work for about two hours a day, maximum.
But that doesn't worry me. I go slowly, and I don't have to pay anyone to do it for me. And it eventually gets done. Yay me. And Ken did his share by raking up all the trimmings for the burn pile. The last bit to get done was the roadside hedge, which is also the longest single section.
And this year is the first year in three that I've actually trimmed the whole hedge and the bay tree without leaving any part undone. I feel very good about that. Now I don't have to think about this again for another year. And I'm hopeful that the ditch along the road will be filled in before I have to trim again.
And you won't have to read about it again for another year.
