My corelink armband says I got 60 minutes of exercise in 2 hours of edging. It's ironic, isnt it, that I am trying to eat healthier only to cover myself in MTBEs, hydrocarbons and oxides of nitrogen , particulate matter (damaging to the respiratory system), carbon monoxide...ETC
and I quote " And speaking of gas, the EPA estimates that over 17 million gallons of fuel, mostly gasoline, are spilled each year while refueling lawn equipment. That's more than all the oil spilled by the Exxon Valdez, in the Gulf of Alaska."
So slowly the grass on my little patch is converted to woodlands, if those deer would stop eating the trees I plant, and I cover foot by foot with mulch. So much to change, some days I am immobilized by the magnitude of to dos.
