Spent all morning trying to remove the last of 4 screws holding the blades on my shredder as they needed sharpening. Finally resorted to the use of a blowtorch to heat it up and an impact driver to remove!
As soon as I actually started shredding I noticed, 3 feet away, wasps going in and out of the pile of dry stuff I keep to feed in with the green stuff (helps keep it from clogging) so had to proceed with great caution so as not to disturb them! I'll leave that pile alone now until the winter when they will be gone.
Tip: Unless you have a very large garden, do not plant a kiwi fruit vine which you have grown from the seeds of a supermarket fruit! They grow like wildfire once established and no sign of even a single flower let alone fruit after about 10 years. I removed one a couple of years ago, dug down 3 feet to get as much root out as I could but it has reappeared this year. 3 more to go..
