Grass Powered Mowing
The wife is forever advocating that we get some sort of additional creature to cuddle with on the interior of our house and another creature to take care of the mowing (and provide hair for yarn, I suspect). On both counts, my resistance is durable, but I was intrigued tonight to see an article on the NYTimes describing how some small farmers are putting away the tractor (and its fuel requirements) and putting the stick to the ox. The oxen do require fuel, but is fairly abundant. The wife likes the idea of a goat. Do you like the idea of a goat in our yard? Hmm.
