Red letter day with a green mower

Today was a great day for the planet, and all it took was for us to take a step back to the '50s, before we knew how enviro-conscious we were in so many ways - actually walking to the store or library, reading books, eating in, fishing, playing ball...and pushing a lawn mower.

Human power over fossil fuel. What a concept.

So today I bought Victoria a green reel push mower...because that's the kind of guy I am. Never in our wildest dreams would either of us opted for pushing a lawn mower over a power mower way back when, but today is different. And reel mowers are so clean, quiet, so eco-friendly.  

Besides, we're trying to save the planet, right?  Right. But making the little woman happy is really the important thing. And Casey loves tagging along.

  1. Very eco friendly but as our garden has quite a slope I don't think that I'm quite ready to be as green as you!
