My husband helped me this last weekend in the garden, getting the tomatoes staked and mulched, some items moved around, etc. Even cut some of the grass around my pots. If I don't do it myself, the yard guys will get too close to my plants and will break my pots and will chop off any part of my plant that is hanging out of the pot. I just found out about a handheld battery operated cutter I can get (we've been using scissors). It reminds me of a hair trimmer. Looking forward to getting it and trying it.
