Pretty soon, I'm going to have me some mid morning breakfast, then I'm going to mow the lawn, just as I do every Monday. Sometimes the neighbors gardener is mowing at the same time I am. He has a great dog that travels with him, and I always stop and say hello to the dog.

Right there with ya. I haven't had a single dry day without something else to attend to where I've been able to mow.. ALL FREAKIN' spring.

The weather is supposed to finally warm up and dry out a bit -- enough to actually mow that bunch of grass out there called a 'lawn'.

I haven't actually checked the weather here in Southeastern PA, but there appears to be a doozie of a storm coming--they sent the kids home early from school!

And yeah, I do need to mow!

I got a break yesterday and mowed. Rain again this morning.

No mowing as ever here, but we'd take the rain. Didn't think I'd have to learn what "pyrocumulonimbus" meant, but here we are.

The "soil" at my main house is all sand. I've brought in countless truckloads of topsoil and it just disappears. I mow once a year. The grass grows like crazy at my summer home.

I feel your pain OP. I knocked mine out around 1pm Saturday. Grass was pretty wet but I managed. Seems like it's been raining most days for the last 2 months in Eugene.

I wrote a fitting song a couple of years ago.


Well I got flat feet
I ain't no athlete
Not qualified to do you right
I've been outta jail
Nobody would pay my bail
And I tried with all my might

So I'll be mowin' lawns for a livin'
'Cause that's all I'm good for
Yes, I'll be mowin' lawns for a livin'
Get it neat right to your door
Yes, I'll be mowin' lawns for a livin'
'Cause baby, that's all I can do
Mowin' lawns for a livin'
Pay me and I'll do yours too.

I took a tumble
Fought in a rumble
No chance to clean my sheets
I'm just no good
I'm workin' for food
Keep your lawn tidy and neat

So I'll be mowin' lawns for a livin'
'Cause that's all I'm good for
Yes, I'll be mowin' lawns for a livin'
Get it neat right to your door
Yes, I'll be mowin' lawns for a livin'
'Cause baby, that's all I can do
Mowin' lawns for a livin'
Pay me and I'll do yours too.

around here they're saying, No Mow May for the benefit of the bees .... so I'm saying Yay no mowing for me til June!
Got back from Out West Vacation to find the lawn in NC overrun by this one kind of wildflower I don't like (but these wood boring bumblebees love it). I cut as much of it down as possible, to put the hurt on these stupid insects. They're eating my building and it had to stop.

The birds have returned in huge numbers. They love it cut, I think.

I mow about 15 acres of land (two locations) with growth rates currently measured in feet per minute.

And our new Husqvarna zero turn mower is in the shop with a toasted voltage regulator. Hope it comes home tomorrow or I’ll have to break out the brush hog!
