Mowed my lawn today, boy did it need it.
Sure wish someone would invent a lawnmower that does not clog up with wet grass. I would pay extra.
I thought we might have a thread to keep track of this year by year.

Our first mow was a couple weeks ago. I keep a Word document called 'Earth Dates' and note things like first/last frosts, snow dates and depth, first mow, when various creatures return (robins, frogs, red winged blackbirds, etc.), and when trusted plants do something I tie to a planting date (peas in with the frogs, spuds in when dandelions bloom). This year is really late for the frogs, haven't heard a peep yet and sometimes they come out mid-Feb.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

I mow every month of the year. If you keep it short, no big deal.

With our recent heat wave, my lawn is turning brown and at a standstill. We still mow, mainly to keep the seedling trees (aspens and cottonwoods) from gaining a foothold.

I mowed my lawn last week- not because the grass was too tall (it has gone brown) but to cut down the horsetails that had sprung up!
