New Toy

I bought a new toy on Amazon a few weeks ago.

This is what it looks like. Pretty, eh?

I have a lot of shrubs around my house and a bunch of small trees that need trimming. Up to now I've just trimmed them every so often and left the trimmed branches in a pile around my shed. Not very pretty and a rodent attractant so I finally decided to spend the money to remedy the situation.

One of the reasons that I'd delayed is that I thought that the inexpensive electric shredders could only do leaves. They mostly use nylon fish line to do their work and that wouldn't do anything to branches. But I recently discovered that there's an inexpensive ($160 - 300) alternative to gas powered chipper / shredders ($600 and up)---and so I ordered one pronto!

At $207 delivered, this beauty is well worth the money---assuming it works. The reviews on Amazon are fairly positive so I'm hoping for the best.

This is what the sweet little thing looked like all splayed out on my living room floor this past week. I put it together for the weekend and I'll post pictures of it once I get it outside and all covered with ground up plant bits.
