Cycling Mowing

...maybe I could have put it off until next weekend....

Not the two wheels I'd typically choose to have out.

I obviously didn't follow the good mowing practice of only taking off a third....

- TOB water it so it grows, then cut it off, then water it so it grows, then cut it off, then fertilize it so it grows, then cut it off.....does anyone else see the futility here?

I mowed on Saturday. It had to be done.

Believe me, that thought has crossed my mind many times.

I've tried just about everything short of deisel fuel to kill my grass.

It keeps growing back:-)

Rip it out and plant a garden; you'll be talk of the neighborhood!

I'd love to xeriscape my whole yard....

i use the same logic on making the bed and picking up my sons toys . . .

both are exercises in utter futility.

Planting a garden is what my intentions are as well. The only thing that stops me is "being the talk of the neighbourhood." Everyone's yard within the vicinity is meticulously manicured. I just can't keep up. I feel so inadequate. Why can't I have a pretty green lawn like everyone else? Because you spend too much time riding your bike is what the neighbours are saying... Oh. So that's what "they" mean by "the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence?"

Me back yard is 30yrds across and 100yrds deep...... I'm thinking a pump track would be my best choice or possibly a six pack of rollers for a rhythm section and a pump track. If I did that though I may never leave the back yard:) Mowing it tonight....yuck.

Peace

one of my pab's best days was when he sold his mower because we were moving to the mountains where there are no lawns

and he'd tell you so himself but we're sorta mostly offline due to moving again but still no lawn--yay!

Budda -- yes, but somehow little humans are different...they'll eventually learn and change. Grass just keeps on being grass.

Ruby -- maybe the grass is greener where there isn't any...perhaps they say that with an envious tone!

Squirrel -- man, you're onto something with that one! Fun!

XB -- smart, smart, smart. It should be that way regardless of area. We're in the middle of woods and prairie...that's what lawns should be around here.

Hee! I say just let it grow. :-D

Nancy -- agreed. Thanks for stopping by!
