Com’on young ones. Mowing is what keeps you in shape, she said, as she hopped on the riding mower to cut the two acres. We live in a modern apartment complex where everything is done for you, including the lawn outside our patio door which is manicured every Monday. However, when we are at the ‘homestead’ that is another story. Its mow or be mowed under by grass weeds and trees. So even this old lady gets a chance to be a lady gentlewoman farmer as she climbs aboard the ole John Deere to cut that grass. Then after, to sit high above on the porch, cocktail in hand and enjoy the beauty of the MOWED acre that leads to the lake. Totally refreshing and worth every bit of effort.
