In principle, I am not a fan of the gas powered lawn mower. They are loud, smell bad, and use fossil fuel to do their work. Alas, sadly, my push mower is just not up to the task of cutting some mighty weeds. As much as I love my weeds for food and wildlife habitat, these particular weeds get very nasty stickers and need to be cut before reaching maturity.
Equally sadly, the mower didn’t start again after I turned it off to move some stuff out of the way.
