Keeping It Short

I was outside this afternoon to mow the lawn, we have to keep it below 3 inches so after a rain in the spring you need to get with it.  I have a battery operated lawn mower and I love it very easy to start and use.  The battery last long enough to mow the whole yard as long as I do not let it get to long.

In  the heat of the summer I prefer to let it be a little longer as it does not dry out and turn burn as fast as short grass does.  Say keep it at least 5 inches.  Anyway the lawn mower I own is a Green Works and though I had a problem getting the battery and battery charger at the beginning.  The mower was worth it.  I have to keep it in the house so I needed one that was heavy duty with a steel band but light enough for me to get up my three steps.  This one does the trick.  Nice mower.

While I was outside I took a photo of my raspberry blooms which are in the beginnings of turning to a berry.

DSC00530She is really pushing hard but you don’t need to with this mower.  It is almost self moving. I have to keep the lawn mower simple to keep the lawn short.
