and realized we've been duped again. All this green propaganda was just a ploy to turn us from lazy desk slaves into fit field slaves again. We think we're starting a revival, but the government just wanted us to grow more food for them. :P
Hey, I posted up a thread about this kind of thing not too long ago! Were I to have a yard, I'd certainly try mowing it with a scythe - they're terribly nifty things.
In the meantime, I have an old sickle.
We have an old sickle, too! It's definitely not as expedient or ergonomical for mowing our 3 acres of grass as a scythe is. We're actually looking at buying a scythe now, especially since Knifegill tends to kill most gas-powered lawn equipment (lawnmowers, weedwackers, etc. We're afraid to give him a chainsaw...). I guess he's just too much of a caveman!
Although, for the $200+ we'd be spending on a scythe, maybe we should buy some sheep and a fence... except, our baby is due in September, and I'd rather focus on taking care of the baby rather than a sheep. One thing at a time, and all. I hear babies really eat up your sleep, mental-capacities, energy, time, and sanity like nothing else...
I'm actually more afraid of stepping on a bee while barefoot than cutting myself. The one time I got stung by a bee was when I stepped on one while running in a sprinkler. Not fun! Needless to say, I don't walk in the grass barefoot anymore!
