Well, I hadn't used one in a while before today, usually only need them once a year or so, but I had forgotten how much of a PITA it is to use a bed edger. I know it didn't help that there was a lot of clay where I was working but it really sucked! I worked from about 10 this morning till about 4 this afternoon edging and my hands are soar and now have blisters (and that was with gloves). The best thing... I've got to do it again tomorrow, already behind! We've also got 300 bales of pinestraw and 3yds of mulch to spread tomorrow!
