The winner of the Troy-Bilt giveaway (winning a TBC57 Cordless / Battery-Powered Cultivator) is… Congratulations, Benjamin! (May I call you Ben?) I really hope you’ll keep me updated on your front yard prairie plan, because that sounds awesome. I’ll be contacting you via email tomorrow, and you better be making a blog or something so I can follow your plans! I have a million posts in my head and camera right now, but I also have lots of busy weekends. Fair warning: some involve the garden, and some involve the baby.
NOTE: I have had this post in my back pocket FOREVER because I wanted to add a little action video of the product in use. But with the severe lack of rain, Will has only cut the grass a couple times in the past couple months, both times when I was at work. So…lawnmower video eventually? I want to do an obstacle course and stuff! He will grumble, but FUN, right?! We did a little lawnmower trading this year. We passed down our 3 year old Craftsman to my parents (perfect timing, since my parents’ house is on a hill [...]
…don’t be disgusting. It’s not that. It’s a garden blogger thing! Last year I was chosen to be a part of Troy-Bilt’s Saturday Six program, and this year they decided to keep the same group together! Which is pretty cool since I’m all internet friendly with the group now, since we actually got to meet in person (can we say “out of Jennah’s comfort zone but ended up fun”?). So yet again, I’ll be putting together some tip videos (maybe one that features Ainsley OUT of my belly!…though she’s not much help in the garden), doing some reviews, and giving [...]
kimmyshimmy! Congratulations Kimmy – I hope this gives you a little extra shimmy this holiday and helps you take care of both your yard and your elderly in-laws. I’ll be contacting you to get your info soon. Thank you to everyone who entered. I was really touched by how many people said they’d use the TB144 to take care of not only their yard, but also a friend or neighbor’s. You guys are really sweet! If you’d like to purchase the TB144, head on over and buy it directly from Troy-Bilt. I also highly recommend their garden hand tools for [...]
When my parents came over recently to help my pregnant self mulch and clean up the garden for the winter, we broke out the Troy-Bilt TB144 edger/cultivator for a test run. Below is a video of my 60+ year old dad (who just happened to have a bum knee that weekend) easily using the edger all the way around my main garden area. I would have had a parent video ME using it, but I was not allowed to do much manual labor because of my “delicate condition.” I asked him what he thought of it after using it and [...]
