Going Green in the Yard
Just sold our gas guzzling, non eco-friendly riding lawn mower and replaced it with a manual rotary blade mower. No gas, no electricity, just good old fashioned human energy.
Mowed about 2 acres (some breaks and lots of water), took a little longer to get the yard in good shape but it looks great with nice, even lines. No noise or fumes or quick trips to the gas station. Yay.
It is light, turns easily, very cheap, and great exercise.
Every day we are trying to make greener choices.
