And Watching the Grass Grow
It's still wet outside, and it looks as if it's going to rain again any minute.
The Boys were even in their stalls this morning. Guess they are tired of being wet. I have some serious cleaning to do out there as a result. But I'll wait a little longer.
Meanwhile, I'm watching the grass grow in the front yard. The back isn't so bad because with the fencing and gates across the driveway, I was able to put the Boys out there to graze and they did a pretty good mowing job. But I can't let them out in the front, so the grass and dandelions just keep on growing.
I mowed just over a week ago and as I finished the belt slipped off the mower deck. Then it started raining and I just haven't made the effort to get it back on. I think I know the technique, but it is a bit of work. And it's still hard for me to get down low like that on my new knees. So, I've put it off.
Not that it matters. I think since then I've only had one or two spaces of time when it's been dry enough to mow.
Worse, the front bank has sprouted with a vengeance, which means I am going to have to week whack sooner than later so I can see oncoming traffic when I try to pull out of the driveway.
Ah well. Clearly, I need a yard worker, but since I can't afford one, I'm it. I'm still certainly capable of handling the work, I'm just too darn lazy to do it--especially in the wet. (Weed whacker has an electric cord...so that's not too safe in the wet either.)
So, I may need a hay baler soon.
