Two weeks ago, I thought the mowing season couldn't be pushed off any longer. A good bit of cooler weather since then seems to have halted the grass growth, but with lots of rain in the forecast, today looked like one of the few dry opportunities. The mowing season is starting 13 days later than last year, but two days earlier than in 2009 (the grass piles in the photo above suggest I waited too long this time). Coincidently, the first mowing day for all three years fell on a Wednesday. Although the cut grass is pleasant to look at, it looks like we're committed to tending to it for another 6 months.
