We have a couple of oak trees in our front yard that always drop their leaves super late so there's never an opportunity to rake them in the fall. I've been chipping away at them ever since the weather improved, and I'm happy to say that I was able to finish that task this evening. So, now I can move on to more pressing tasks such as the perpetual weeding that needs done all summer. Sigh.
On a positive note, I got a new weed whacker this week and boy is it making that task easier. The old one was electric and the guard was always falling off, so it was a bit of a pain to use. The new one runs on a rechargeable battery and made quick work of whacking weeds this evening.
