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 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!

Revitalizing this thread. We have mowed a few times already, mainly just to clean things up a bit. Just back from a month long foray and the lawn is looking clumpy, so my guess is if we get some dry days we'll be mowing. Easy lead-in to spring cleanup.
