    Cool Push mowing, anyone?

    Well, it appears that I cannot even respond to my own threads until my post count is 10! (Something circular about that?)

    I just used my Fiskars push-mower to mow my lawn - quite a workout but it's getting easier.

    Anyone else here use a push mower? What kind do you have? How big is your yard and how long does it take? Do you feel like a superhero when you've finished? (I do!)

    Oh - and I forgot - that's my push mower in my picture!

    Well...I would mow but the majority of my lawn is covered with raised garden beds filled with vegetables. My goal is to see how much food I can grow on my city lot. But CONGRATS on your push mower!!!

    We had a gas powered mower, but it got stolen from our shed (highly disturbing). We are currently using a service. Hubby and I both work full time plus I have a side business. Our free time is precious enough that I am willing to pay to have someone else keep the yard work done.

    When I had a "lawn" it was really just an overgrown field that we built our house in the middle of. I put up a low stone wall to define the yard, and I used to cut the whole thing with an electric string trimmer. Good times (not really...)

    We also had a gas mower that was stolen, many moons ago when we lived in Minneapolis. Yeah, disturbing, even more disturbing to find out it was stolen by our next door neighbor, whom we considered a friend. I bought a push mower for $2 at a garage sale and the kids used that. Don't recall what kind. When we moved up here, we bought a used gas mower again. When we moved here to our lake property, we got rid of all the mowers because there's no way to mow something that looks like this:

    We use weed whackers for the small areas we do keep trimmed.
