The clover has really taken over this year, more so than in previous years. And, in the dog pen, I let it go way too long. So much so, there was no way it could be mowed. Well, this morning, I got out and mowed it down with the weed eater. I am surprised my weed eater didn’t burn out. It is a Black and Decker, so it must be like the Timex of weed eaters – takes a beating and still keeps weeding!
Some before, during and after pictures:
I weed eated a path so I would have a sense of direction. I worked on one side and then the other. While I was weeding towards the doggie condo, Charlie startled me, he had made a bed in the clover and I didn’t see him until I got up on him. Well, I went to get my camera and when I got back, he must have gotten spooked and jumped out of the clover bed. I got a picture of where he was anyway.
Ta da!! All done!
I had to switch off arms doing this as each would get tired. I am an ambidextrious weed eater-er! I think this took a couple hours and I imagine my arms will be sore tomorrow.
I wasn’t done though. I also mowed down the clover (with the mower this time) by the front gate and around in the yard, along with the tons of dandelions that are growing. Now, I am done!!
