It happens every spring.
We breathlessly wait for the yard to green up.
Overnight it greens and GROWS...and the mowing is on. The first mowing of this season took over 25 man hours to complete. I manned the push mower for the orchard and around the perimeter and in close places - like the swing set, hammocks and around the fire ring. Allie and Stacia set to with the weed eaters. Michael and Arielle took turns on the riding mower. 25 hours!!! The grass was tall - so we had to empty the bags OFTEN.
We don't live in a manicured neighborhood - even so, we probably are a couple of weeks behind. We've been putting most our man hours on Michael's project...but we have an outside bridal shower to host...so it's time to move the mowing to the top of the list.
Grandpa pulled dead leaves off this cherry tree. (It's August 4th and I can report we have lots of cherries).
