Re: [gardeners] Thursday in the garden

We had our first produce from the garden yesterday, a half-dozen asparagus
spears. Looking forward to more!

I wonder if anyone can advise on a problem.  Our back neighbors have
something like a hedge adjacent to our yard.  It's really a mess of
overgrown bushes, small trees, honeysuckle, etc.  I cut it back a couple of
times a year with hedge clippers, but I can't reach nearly to the top --
15-20 feet up.  I have a 15' pruner but that gets just one branch at a time
and is pretty tedious.  Any suggestions?
