“Let’s get a reel mower.”
Be still my heart, a GAL powered mower! I had registered for one when we got married, but everyone just called me foolish and laughed. I thought about buying one the second summer we where here, but anyone who would listen called me foolish and laughed. (I’m pretty sure we have a trend when it comes to my hair brained ideas….)
After battling field mice in the mower for the second winter in a row, and a handy dandy sale at our neighborhood Lowes, the reel mower wasn’t just a sound environmental move and new awesome workout regimen, it also will allow us to keep up with Neighbor G. who mows his lawn three times a week when our push mower decides to go on the fritz.
The thing I’m most excited, though, is being able to help with the yard work more. It’s a huge yard that takes a lot of time to keep up with, and it was awesome when JGL and I were able to bust it all out in about half the time. Pitching in and keeping it reel have never felt so good!
