First Mow of the season

First mow of the season.  The batteries were maintained on trickle charge since last December.

Total cost of electricity for last year was a whopping $2.30. 

The grass is just starting to grow, and we have not had a lot of rain this month.  I think it is going to be a strange season.

I did not edge yet, but those batteries have been charged too.

Last mow? and lights

Last mow of the season?  Never have needed to mow in December

We shall see.

I already put in the stakes to mark the walks in the snow. This was before the freeze, but later in the week we were in the 60s, so the grass continued to grow.


Put up the lights.  


  • Leaves and acorns.  The lawn grew a bit too.  Mulching the leaves used more power.  The battery was down to  1/4.  
  • This is when having a second battery is useful.  The battery can be switched and the mower can keep going.
  • Palmyra has a large number of big trees.  There will be more leaves than the mower can handle.  I will blow the leaves and place them at the curb for collection.
