    Was gonna mow the backyard today, for the last time and put the mower away. But its really not THAT long and its so nice and lush and tender, I think I'll just let it go and let the girls keep plenty tender tips to munch on, and the leaves aren't bothering me either... ;-)

    I agree! I had my husband skip the last lawn mowing, too. The chickens just love to eat grass. He mowed the front yard, and left the back alone (it's not even long) Let them enjoy their salad (until the snow comes anyway!)

    People are still mowing in places? We've gotten snow. [​IMG] All we've used the mower for in more than a month was chopping up the leaves in the yard. No way I'm raking all that. We just go over it with the mower, turn it into tiny pieces, and let it breakdown over winter. All gone by spring.
