PostSubject: Cut the grass   Fri Mar 30, 2018 9:56 pm

Several days ago I got the lawn mowers ready to use. Today, the wife and I cut the grass for the first time this season. Half way through, the Husquevarna mower my wife was using stopped working. I took it in the garage to work on it and found the throttle cable is hooked to a spring that broke, rendering the all wheel drive system useless! So, I let her use the ten year old Toro self-propelled mower to finish! I then put the battery from my Cub Cadet rider on the charger and tomorrow I'll use it to finish the front yard. I have a feeling it's going to be a long season for mowing grass!

Hey Conrad,

We're now almost in Apr and I still haven't cut our lawns. The winter is dragging this year in Blighty. I've driven across to Snowdonia again today to spend easter with the Outlaws and there's still snow on the ground. It'll come.

Here in Central CT, Iím seeing green shoots, but Iím also seeing snow in the steenkin forecast. Itís unlikely it will hang around long enough to shovel. And weíre having a new deck built out of those no-maintenance Trax materials. I canít wait to get out there with me pip and a wee drop, watching the sun go down.

I remember those days far to well. When I was growing up in Texas we had 5 acres 3 of which were mowable. One push mower that we replaced every 3-5 years depending on how good a crop of bluebonnets we got for the year Lol. Nothing like 2 1/2acted of blooming bluebonnets. Miss that place but I sure Don't miss the heat, humidity, scorpions and rattle snakes. Best of luck getting yours finished soon.

Folks who enjoy mowing lawn are some of the strangest people to me. It's completely lost on me.

Where I live now I have to mow my lawn twice a year on average. Last two years it was just once each year. Got mostly moss and straggly grass that doesn't seem to grow much as I'm surrounded by big firs. Don't get much sun, but suits me fine.

One place I lived back in cheesehead land was a rather large property. Took several hours with a mower that had no self propelling. In the heat and humidity it was brutal. And the damn grass needed mowing every week too. Don't miss that routine at all.

Where I'm headed there won't be any grass to cut! Wink


Cheers,

RR

I'd sooner order up a pallet of bricks and then proceed, once a week, to move them from one side of the yard back to the other, over and over again. To me, that's what mowing lawn is: senseless work. Whoever came up with lawns (probably the rich on huge British aristocrat estates) was a real a$$hole. Whoever set that wheel in motion deserves a confirmed spot in hell.

Grass? Is that's what's under all of the white stuff I'm still looking at?

This morning I woke up to 5Ē of new white stuff. Twelve hours later itís almost completely melted. Perfect snowperson material while it lasted. It did, however, prevent the completion of my new Trex deck. But I went out there with my Charatan tomato filled with a DIY blend of McC 5100, 5105 and Perique that been waiting patiently in the cellar since 2002. So I do not count the day as lost. Not at all.

I cut my first 2 lawns of the new season Friday after work, and then Sunday (Easter) evening it was sleeting and changed over to freezing rain.

No

Won't be mowing the lawn anytime soon: we have a forecast for 1 foot of snow for today, 90% chances. Suspect

I still haven't been able to get back out to finish cutting the grass. It's been too cold and rainy. This morning I took the trash to the community dumpster in my UTV. Dang, it was so cold, my pipe smoke froze! Rolling Eyes Laughing
