Green Goals

In my list of homemaking goals, under the subheading “Garden” lies goal #7:

“Mow a lawn with an old-style mower”

I am happy to say that today, I turned the text of Goal #7 gray…and wrote after it “DA: April 30, 2011”

Date of Accomplishment: April 30, 2011.

Because today, I went to my local Menards and bought myself a lawnmower.

Old-Style Push Lawn Mower

I came home and assembled my lawnmower; then I mowed my front and side lawns.

So I’ve checked something off my list–but even more excitingly, I am now the owner of an old-style push lawn mower.

Which means I can mow my lawn the green way–any time I want!

I’m ecstatic.

(I’m also eager to see if my theory holds true that mowing with a manual mower is more allergy-friendly because it doesn’t kick grass particles quite so high into the air….I’ll keep you posted.)


Which reminds me of a little Jeopardy-style question I thought up in the tub a few days ago.

Answer: 510 nanometers

Question: What is “Green Energy”?

  1. I would love to own (use) one of these. My yard is so large it would take me days to get it all done, only to start over again. As I get older though I am saying things like, let’s put some garden beds here, how about here. thinking of filling in all the space that I mow! I have to wear a mask while mowing or I can’t breath when I am done. Thanks for all the “green” you do! Have a blessed day!

  2. See, I see that and think, “Glutton for punishment!!” ;D But I do hope YOU enjoy!

    We had an electric mower once which worked well enough and made Jonathan happy. =D Now we have a riding lawn mower. Which is not green even in color, but highly convenient!
