Sorry it took me so long, I got side tracked weeding in the glorious coolness of evening. Until it got so dark I couldn't see the weeds. I thought about putting on a head lamp. Sticking tongue out

There weren't even an mosquitos out there. Perfect gardening weather, if it wasn't so dark. Maybe big flood lamps? Whistling

Hmmm, not that's a good thought. Now I have to think if I should tape them the the bottom of my forearm, or the top?

Hey, guys, I sit down as I weed, using a chair. If it was after dark, would I need a flashlight taped to the, <*cough*>, other end to avoid missing the chair as I move around? Just thinking out loud here, but don't want the neighbors to think I'm any more weird than they already believe nor do I want to give them an excuse to call the police about the weird neighbor. I mean, this problem has been solved by nature in the past. That's how we got fireflies, isn't it? Blinking Wouldn't the flashlights attract amorous attention from the fireflies?

Hurray! I'm safe here twit, we don't have fireflies. I am also screened from view of my neighbors by hedges and trees. I am also used to doing some things by braille, so don't think I would have a problem with something as large as a chair. And yes, I use a chair when weeding the semp beds. You could tape those glow strips on the chair handles though. Bet the fireflies would love that. Whistling

I was worried about the mosquitoes, but it has been so dry here this summer that there doesn't seem to be any out there. Hurray!

This could be very helpful, tape it onto tool handles, chairs, bed edges. Funny they don't list these things in their add? Rolling my eyes.

Solar lights sounds like the answer!! (although I wish they would make solar light tape! Now that would be cool!) At nearly $1 per foot, its hard for me to think that I'll be getting it any time soon! Thumbs down
