Off to the Mansfield Flea market this morning looking for an old fashioned reel push mower.
According to Go Green, Live Rich by David Bach, 2 cycle engines have no emission standards and spew as much pollution in an hour as our car will traveling 100 miles. Plus we spill 17 million gallons filling our lawn care machines. This exceeds the Exxon Valdez Oil spill; that was 11 million.
So part of our lawn will grow wild. We plan to harvest some oregano from the local cemetery and transplant to the front lawn and looking forward to seeing what other wild edibles spring up.
We’ve been harvesting dandelion greens off the lawn and using them in smoothies, salads and stir-fries. We also plan to get more exercise and the savings on hiring out lawn care will be about $100 a month.
Life is good!
