July 3 was the first sunny day we’ve had in weeks and by 3 p.m. the grass was dry enough to mow so I started cutting the grass. All was good until I tried mowing on the north side of my garden. Yes, I should have checked all over first but I didn’t. My riding lawn mower got bogged down in the mud and I could not go forward or backwards. The back wheel dug a hole about eight inches deep and I was stuck.
I tried putting planks under the wheels but it was really sucked in so I had to call Jerry Pepin over to help me. He just used old-fashioned man power and lifted the tractor out of the hole and got me mobile again. Thank goodness for great neighbours. When I checked it out I couldn’t even mow the grass with my push lawn mower because the ground was floating in water.
