Wear Gardening Gloves For The Unexpected - pampas grassWear Gardening Gloves For The Unexpected - pampas grass


Some time back I wrote an article on the importance of wearing gloves while working in areas that might be infested with black widow spiders. One might do well to consider gloves when working in other areas, too.


I have a nice, long row of Pampas grass planted in front of a nice, long row of Arborvitae. They're both quite young. Pampas can be beautiful if it's kept clean. That means cutting back all the dead foliage each year. Today, I decided to give my Pampas their first flat top.

The Pampas sliced my finger. Never would I have thought Pampas grass blades could inflict such a painful wound. Did it smart? Well, I did a dance, and it wasn't so the neighbors would throw quarters at me. Mercy!

Any more barbering done to the Pampas means gloves. No exceptions!

Ouch! I'm glad to know that because I will not ever plant that type of grass.
I have black widows in the spring, and the are everywhere outside in the backyard. If I have to move stuff around, I would wear gloves for them too. I wish you a quick recovery for your finger which is injured!!!
