I was on the orchard cutting the grass yesterday. Boy, was the weather hot and sticky! To avoid strimmer rash and to protect my eyes I always wear full clothing, gloves and a visored helmet. The Hyundai Field Trimmer is quite good for not throwing up debris, but occasionally plant debris heads toward the operator.
I had sweat running down my face and dripping from the helmet. I took plenty of water stops to cool down so I only managed to cut half the grass before quitting time.
The quality of the grass is improving and the weed count is dropping as a consequence of the regular mowing over the past couple of years. I spent some time looking at the river and deciding what to do about the bank of stones that built up during the winter storms, but more about that later.
