Mowing high today. Heading into the dog days of August. While we have had lots of rain in June and July, the forecast is hot with only scattered showers.
Mowed in Palmyra today using the Black and Decker CM1936 mower. I disturbed a bunnie who appears to live there.
The lawn growth has slowed. Mowing used less than half of the battery.
Used the Black and Decker blower to clear the sidewalks. It uses an 18 volt NiCad battery.
Both the lawn mower and blower batteries recharge in 12 hours.
It is hot, but with all of the rain we have been getting, we could probably mow twice a week. I raised the height of the blade to 3.5 inches and I expect to stay high until fall. It is the middle of the summer and the rain will likely stop at some point.
