Today my dad asked if I would mow the lawn for him. Now, this is a first for me and I was somewhat surprised to find that it is hard work cutting grass. Or rather scything is possibly comparably easier than pushing a machine.
Anyway, the experience of mowing the lawn this afternoon made me doubly glad that my lawns have been returned to the soil and the space is being used to grow other things. I still feel I have too much work to do for too little return but hopefully as my garden becomes filled with perennials this will be less so.
