We have five acres of grounds to care for, upkeep is a lot of work. We are thankful for the help we have – three full-time groundskeepers and one that is here for a few months. But now with at least an acre planted with crops it has become too much for them. By the time they make it to the back of the property, the front is already grown up. And weeding the crops has taken up a lot of their time. So we thought instead of hiring some more workers we would buy them lawnmowers! Slashing is how they normally cut grass here and I can’t even watch them do it all day – it seems back breaking to me! No, these mowers don’t have engines but they are thrilled all the same. We were concerned with safety, don’t want anyone to cut their feet off! What would have taken them all day only took about an hour and a half today! There is some that will have to be slashed down a little first, it is too thick, but I’m sure they will have all of the front and part of the backyard finished tomorrow!
It did take them a bit to get going good, and Christian told them that if it seemed to miss any, one could mow behind the other and get the missed parts. After they got the hang of it, it was mowing pretty good but one still followed right behind the other! Oh well, they either figure it out or don’t! They are happy!
Now we pray they take care of them and maybe they will last a little while!
