newest (old) addition to our tool family

We've just been given a present - our neighbour is moving, and she has bequeathed to us her Dad's old push mower - it's been in their family for over 50 years. Its blades will need sharpening, but otherwise it is good to go - no more gas or electric mower around these here parts! better for the environment, better for us, too: Using a push mower will save almost 100 kilograms of carbon emissions in a year.


  1. That is a nifty mower! Enjoy your new addition. :)

  2. We've been using a push mower for many years now. Our plot of grass is small and takes all of 10 minutes to cut. Today we'll be purchasing some chili and tomato plants to put in pots. The weather hear in T.O has finally steadied in the 20s.
    Have a wonderful day!

  3. Exquisite vintage mower ! Super gift.
