|Sorry, buddy, but you're confined to the shed for the time being.|
I should mention that the reel mower did do a fine job on the narrow strip of grass on the side of the house that was blocked by drainage pipe that Jay didn't bother moving out of the way since he had about a zillion other square feet to mow. I used my reel mower there. I'm ashamed to say I became slightly out of breath. It was maybe three hundred square feet total. Yes, you can laugh.
In the meantime, we have secured the mowing services of our neighbor's brother to keep that wiley grass in check until we get out there permanently.
I WILL use that push mower once we get the garden established to keep the paths manicured.

That second picture is a bit misleading. The weather decided to become an asshole for the majority of our visit. Apparently we brought shitty Cali weather with us, and it's all nice and warm at the holler again now that we've left. I decided to be positive about it and enjoy the coolness because I know that even though I enjoy hot weather, I will probably melt during our first few summers until my body acclimates to the southern heat and humidity.
Next up, being incommunicado kinda blows (but we'll figure something out)!
