With a litter of kittens living next to it, I have no idea when I'll be able to get the back lawn mowed. The mower would freak Farah out for sure, not to mention terrifying the kittens. The grass is getting so long, too. Well, mostly it's weeds that are getting long, and a lot of them are foxtails. I pulled a couple of hundred out by hand this afternoon, but that barely made a dent in the crop. Most years they just get mowed, which is probably why they come back every year. Yanking them all by hand might lead to a better lawn next year.
Unfortunately, after pulling up thousands of foxtails, I probably wouldn't survive to see next year's lawn. My back is already trying to kill me. In fact I can't sit at the computer another minute.
