Believe it or not, I had not pulled our mower out of the shed since the end of August.
The grass just was not growing that much. Usually at the end of summer and through the start of fall, I have to whack it down at least once a week.
This past weekend, I had to cut it, for two reasons.
The front yard, buoyed by a current abnormal stretch of plus-70s temperatures, had gotten too long.
The neighbors’ trees had finally dropped enough leaves on the backyard for me to mulch and catch in the mower bag.
The after photos come tomorrow …
