With the warmest March on record to kick off spring, have you noticed how green (and how long) the grass is in your backyard in April? I mowed my lawn last week for the first time of the season, and I would have to say that's the earliest I've ever mowed it. Usually, I don't mow the lawn until the first of May, but not this year.
Don't let the cool, retro headphones and John Lennon sunglasses fool you--not even music and a stylish lawn-mowing attire could make my last lawn mowing experience pleasant. Where did I go wrong? Using a push reel mower to mow my lawn. That's where I went wrong.
It won't be long now. If your neighborhood is like mine, you'll be hearing the constant roar of the power lawnmower. In the Utica-Rome area, considering all that rain we had this week, this will probably be the first real weekend of local lawn mowing.
