An essential gardening tool

Machetes are essential for gardening here in Jamaica, it seems.  When we drop Der and Kirsi off for school, we often see gardeners heading to work or already at it, and they more often than not have a machete in hand.  They come in handy for chopping down vines but they're also used for trimming hedges, bushes and trees and even for edging grass.  Only this morning did I see my first set of hedge trimmers.  Just another reminder we're in the tropics.  :)
