cutting back

kvolk(5aUt)March 17, 2007

You can never have too many ormamental grasses--until it's time to cut them back in the spring. Today I was tying the grasses into tight bundles with baling twine getting ready to take the chain saw to them next week. I was wearing a long sleeved shirt and gloves but I came out of it with blood on my face and wrists. Those old dry grass blades certainly are sharp.

Exactly! Cutting them down is no fun at all. No matter how much I cover myself up, I wind up with little cuts. But I still wouldn't give them up!
