I was looking at my front yard and there are some tufts of grass and clover that could be dealt with. I may be inclined to hold off for another frost to slow the growth, but may take the push mower out for a spin just to give it a winter exercise.

If I tried to push mow right now, you'd see the footprints and tire ruts come march. With all the rain, there are "jello" spots in the yard.

We are extremely wet right now, just walking through the yard is a sinking experiance. Son still thinks that it would be good to get the tractors out "just to drive around with"

I changed the oil in my truck yesterday and while I was at it I changed the oil in my Sears GT6000...then drove it around a bit...on the driveway.... :D

You know what is funny is at our work they had the one guy mow around the house / building I work in last week. It didn't really need it but I guess the uneven lengths of grass bothered somebody. There are a ton of weeds that always need to be dealt with at that place.

If it was a bit drier, I go around and chop up the leaves some more. I have some Fescue that I planted this fall that could use a hair cut!

I don't think I would be able to get the mower back to the garage if I went out there now, too wet!

I have part time mowing business. I thought I was done for the year have mowers serviced and cleaned up. I got call from customer wanting leaves done one more time. I guess I will do them. I will have to work around the wet ground and rain. The weather is suppose to turn of cold next week.

I will do them that is my income for buying garden tractors and attending shows. I am like everybody else it is in my blood.

We have had some rain, but it could use more. Yard is dry, I may work on this next weekend.
