The new Country Life column is posted here. It’s about my struggle in deciding whether to mow the land around our country “estate” or not. When weeds got out of control after the July rains, I dd indeed get to mowing much of the property. But not our 3 acres or so of pasture; there was no way I was going to tackle that with my push mower. We may hire someone to mow the pasture at summer’s official end. In the meantime, I did venture out to the pasture with the mower to leave my mark, shown here.
