He's mowed down: high bush blue berries, rhubarb, takes special delight in mowing down zucchini, routinely mows any flowers that stray an inch or two outside of their border. Well... perhaps I exaggerate... the flowers stray a lot, perhaps a foot or two! I once caught him trying to mow down a cherry tree. He's not related to George Washington, but I call him Mr. MowsItAll. What other attachments does that BobCat have??? I have dreams of what I could do with a machine with a bucket and a few other attachments.
Ha! It sounds like it!
my EX used to mow down everything under the sun, then blame it on being "colorblind", although I never understood how being colorblind had anything to do with mowing over obviously difficult to mow grass (a row of boxwood bushes), then rose bushes... He even took a bush hog to a lilac!
Does your DH have a particular distaste for zuchinni?
Needless, to say, this one doesn't go NEAR anything gardenwise with his mower, which yes, he loooves.
I admit, the bobcat is a great tool; I joke about how for a year now, I've needed a new wheelbarrow, and he just says, " Why? We have a mower with a trailer AND a BOBCAT!"... Well a BOBCAT IS hard to get between the tomatoes
He's looking at a mower attachment for it (big surprise lol) but we have a bucket, a fork, the tiller, and 2 augers. The augers! Oh I love the augers! Need a hole for axtree? He can dig me a foot or a 3 foot diameter hole, up to 8 feet deep, in about 3 minutes
Oh and setting fence posts us a snap, no more wacking myself on the head with the post driver; he just pulls up and pushes the post in with the bucket.
He's the big machinery operator lol
I had to go take a snapshot for you @speney
... Here's my winter pea plot. We had some corn stalk bales fall apart on us, so we dumped them on a spot, I'd say maybe 1000 sq ft... And yes, DH was like a puppy with me holding a ball, so I said "go till it!"
He tilled in the stalks a little, then I seeded the peas. I didn't drill them in, just broadcast and watered in. That was about 2 weeks ago, and they're up and looking good... Except for the ones struggling to emerge in the bobcat tracks lol...Edited by shortgrass - 10/2/15 at 6:40am
