Week five: and we finally mowed

Until a couple of weeks ago I had never mowed a lawn in my life.  When I was buying a house, I wasn’t really sure I wanted that to change, but even though I found a house with a nice small lawn it still took me five weeks to finally go kicking and screaming to Home Depot to get a lawnmower.

I got the best one!  I bought a Scotts 16″ Elite Push Reel Mower, one of those that doesn’t require gas or electricity, and it works!  My lawn was awful, after all that time, and I honestly didn’t think this mower would work.  I wasn’t really sure that it would work at all regardless.  It did great job.

I wouldn’t recommend this mower for someone who wants a perfectly manicured suburban lawn, but I’m no suburbanite.  With this mower, I mowed by myself for the first time ever.  I didn’t have to go to the gas station.  I can even lift it by myself.  And best of all, Andy and I could have a conversation while mowing.
