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 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.
Warm weather keeps the grass growing. Some of the lawn that had gone dormant has greened up.
Mowed the front yard. Some of the grass is still growing. Some went dormant when it got cold.
The grass in the backyard is already dormant.
Two weeks since I mowed. More than a few leaves too.
Used both batteries
The B&D 18 volt blower is not up to blowing leaves.
Mow and Blow
Grass in the front still growing.
There were a few leaves falling.
The back yard grass is really slowing down.
Maybe one of the last evening mows of the season. It is getting dark early.
Quick mow of the Trenton property. The grass was up to 5 1/4 inches. Since the grass was dry, it mowed easily.
Less than one half of the battery was used.
Electric use since June 14,2015 (3 months) is $1.05.
A quick blow with the B&D 18volt cordless and I was done.
