doodle by andre: moving in slow-mow
THIS ISN’T JUST LOW-TECH, IT’S SLOW-TECH. Even with my old gas-powered push mower (emphasis on “push” on this hilly terrain) and the tractor for the outermost areas, I’m clocking a minimum of 45 minutes a day and not keeping up. Andre Jordan, our doodling friend, swears he has neighbors who cut their lawn with scissors; I will admit to clipping the edges of beds with a large pair myself, but that’s only because I so loathe weed-whackers. You? High tech, slow-mow–or perhaps a hungry goat or two?
