If it doesn't fit anywhere else, it fits here

I never mow earlier than mid-June and then only right after a rainfall as the sun is coming back it. You cut it down to about a quarter of an inch, let it burn real good, and you might not have to do it again til late August if you're lucky.

I'm working on it. In the meantime my reel mower works great.

I just got the blades sharpened. Memo to self, remember to do that every year just like they tell you.

Some people water their lawn - why? so you can cut it more often?

To answer the original questions, starting a power mower before 10am on the weekends is annoying.
