funghi-man posted a question in Fungus IdentificationHi all together, I'm new here and wish you all a good day. Is anyone able to tell me what kind of a mushroom this is? They grow in my backyard in the lawn after a couple of days with rainy weather. I think I've seen them in Europe a long time ago and I would like to know what they are called. They are between 20-40mm tall and have about 2mm thick stems. Best regards, funghi-man
Scythes and lawn mower alternatives
Marcel posted a topic in Sustainable Technologies & Ethical LivingHello all. I have a not too big/not too small lawn area in my garden. I'd get rid of it entirely were it not for my sons, who love to play on the flat, soft surface of grass. I hate mowing my lawn, in part because my whipper snipper and lawn mower are constantly stopping, breaking and needing little tweaks here and there. Also, I can't stand the fumes and smoke that those things generate. Finally, it's quite simply an unpleasant chore because of the vibration and noise and petrol smell, and I put it off until we have a veritable jungle around our house and veggie beds... So, I've been looking into alternatives. I hear a lot about scythes and the meditative process that scything can be. I don't mind a bit of a work out, either. They're not cheap, but if they're effective, then it'd be worth it. This website has a kit for $375. I'm also curious about cylinder/reel mowers. Apparently they provide the best cut, but I imagine that they require quite a bit of care to keep them sharp and smooth. Anyone have any experience with either of these, or any other lawn-mower alternatives? I'd love to hear your thoughts.
