After two -three weeks of straight rain in the Northeast, I am ready to take back our jungle of a yard and mow. I am thinking of doing a design like this since the grass seems to have reached outrageous heights!! Ms. True hates to mow, but I love it! Exercise and instant gratification in one fell swoop! Did you know that you can burn 198 calories in 30 minutes using a push mower (ours is not self-propelled by the way and 2 1/2 acres of grass)! Also by doing serious weeding and digging in your garden can add up to 252 calories per 30 minutes! Ms. True can train for those marathons but I'll take mowing any day!
