Green Up Saturdays



We made another move to be greener around our little corner of the Garden State.
I picked up a new lawn mower for Farmer Dad last weekend from a fellow freecycler.
Can you see it? It is a reel mower. No motor..no fuel..just Farmer Dad Power.
Does a lovely job too.With the way gas prices are going, I couldn't pass it up.
What have you done this week to green up? Share if you care to.
Sorry to anyone looking for this post today, I thought I had it set to post this morning,
but it was set for Monday's date in error. (doh!)

Oh, I'm so jealous you found one of these on Freecycle! I have wanted one for so long but haven't taken the $100 leap yet. To be green at our house, we just don't mow the lawn ;)

I just saw one of those on my Freecycle Digest. I was happy to see it snapped up quickly. They're making a big come-back!

A reel mower actually works? Truly? That is something I'd want to try...

We basically do what we can - recycle, use the swirly lightbulbs, and not waste electricity.

It looks like you have been having a good week. Sorry I have not been around to comment much this week. So busy. I like your fair. It looks really sweet.

Under daddy power this would be great, not sure I'd want to do it. I have been loving my self propelled (gasp) gas mower. I'm finally mowing for the first time in my life...and we have A LOT of lawn.

We would go that way if our yard wasn't 5 acres. Congrats!!

How did I green up this week? Why, I walked 1.5 miles to the Publix with a canvas bag on my shoulder and bought organic avocados with a recycled credit card.

Most of that is true.

We also have a reel mower. And I am the one who uses it. Now for trimming edges and weeds we also have Long neck grass shears

and Z uses them.

I mentioned your post to my dh and he totally agreed about finding one. Thanks for the inspiration.

Knowledge which is acquired under compulsion has no hold on the mind. Therefore do not use compulsion, but let early education be a sort of amusement; you will then be better able to discover the child's natural bent .
