It’s a rainy October so far, but I expect to have to mow one more time to clean up the yard for winter so I’m waiting for the next dry spell. This has been my first year to mow and trim this yard myself. It’s been a huge undertaking, and a few times it got ahead of me and nearly out of control. (I had to go out of town for a week, twice.) The grass has been growing more and more slowly lately, and I’m enjoying not mowing and weedeating constantly. But I did it, I got it done, all year, by myself except for one time in May when I got some help to catch it up when I was behind. I went through countless gallons of gas, and one time had to get the mower blade replaced when I broke the blade on a rock hidden in tall grass.
This is a HUGE property, even after I fenced some sections in to reduce the mowing. I’m proud of myself! And looking forward to the one good thing about winter–no mowing!
