Tool to help you out!

Remember when Naida brought her favorite tool last year to a meeting? Well she sent me this information in case you may want to get one:

Last year when I brought my 36 volt B & D cordless
trimmer/edger to extension for a show & tell everyone really loved it
and I answered a number of questions about it. I was just going through
Sunday’s papers today and noticed the same trimmer in Menard’s sale
paper (the three closest Menards are in
Toledo, Livonia and Jackson). I have never seen it listed anywhere so cheaply
and would love to get the word out to our M.G. group. Two years ago I
paid $179 for mine and Menards has it for sale now and until April 20
for $129. You also get a $10 mail in rebate which brings the price down
to $119. This trimmer is one of the best garden tools I have ever
purchased. No electric cord to drag around and no pull-start gasoline
engine which is a pain to get started. Just snap the battery in and go!
I would recommend purchasing a second battery but check the price at
Amazon.com before purchasing at Menards.

This past winter was a great one for testing the durability of my plant
label. Last summer I used the Brother P-touch to make labels to be used
inside and out. Mine are printed on clear tape but you can purchase
different colored ones. The granola jar label, which has been through the
dishwasher a few times, is not peeling off. Now I hope my plants did as
well as my indoor labels and that I remember their correct names for more signs.
