Default Went For My Last Ride.......

.......of the year on the Cub Cadet. My weeds were getting a bit high, thought I could go until next spring, but weather has been warm and plenty of rain. Hopefully the last for this year.

Here we are approaching Thanksgiving and the grass is full green and still actively growing. Actually cutting now serves two purposes: cutting new growth and mulching "fall" leaves and pine straw.
I suspect we'll need to actually cut the grass here until January.

When you do gather up the branches that have fallen in your yard/driveway, put them in her driveway.

I do dump them on their side of the fence line, sometimes on the sidewalk....no HOA here so the sidewalks are always blocked with cars

If the tree is a known hazard and they are notified in writing they are financially responsible for damages. Had to have neighbors tree condemned once as it was mostly rotten and a threat to our house, the insurance company actually took care of it for me. Been a long time.
I had offered to take the tree down even, they knew it was rotten and was a hazard just waiting for it to fall they said. That's fine when can't hit a structure... Or my cars.
