Green Mowing

I'm sad to say I haven't jumped on the whole "Going Green" lifestyle as much as I should.
But this attempt might just kick my butt in shape literally!
We have purchased a Scotts 20" Classic Mower



No Gas, No Oil, No Electricity
Just good ol' Human Push Power
Yes, it's great for the environment but it is also a great workout!
Ok, now we have 3 acres so I'm not using it on the whole yard just yet.
We bought it for me to keep up with about 8000 sq. ft. of grass in the front and back of our house.
You know the part of the yard the family is always playing in and I am always nagging Dave to mow

I just have to say I LOVE IT!
It's quiet, the kids can play safely nearby and I don't have to worry about flying debris and I am getting an awesome workout!
I think it's a win win for everyone including the environment ;)

Uuuuhhhhggg, PATRICIA!!!! I admire you for mowing ANY part of those 3 acres with that thing, lol! Probably why you are so skinny and I am... well... NOT!

LoL!

You go girl!

Oh my! I'm impressed! I'm allergic to grass, so no mowing for me, but I agree it's a great way to go green.
I recently purchased my own grocery bags in order to keep from using paper or plastic, and I'm embarrassed to admit I've forgotten to bring them to the store too often. I've now resorted to keeping them in my car.

What a great mower. I may have to look into one of those..but would that mean that I would then have to mow the lawn!?!? LOL

Hi, Brooke! Thank You for leaving a comment :)
I am still loving the mower. Prior to this I had Never mowed in my Life! Now I find myself wanting the grass to grow, lol

We have one of those but I only have a 10x10 square to cut.

I can't believe you would want to do more than that. It doesn't work well on weeds or if the grass gets to long.

Jamie, Really I love that thing! Dave started to mow with it yesterday and I yelled at him! Lately, it's my only form of exercise and I need it, LOL
I have tall pieces of grass that it won't cut so I need Dave to go over those and after that I should be able to keep up with it where we have sod.
