I never truly grasped the phrase “grows like a weed” until we had a lawn of our own to care for.
When faced with the same understanding, I convinced myself that the lack of grass growth in my lawn meant that it was not truly a lawn but merely a yard and thus could be allowed to grow tall like a meadow. This reduced my interactions with noisy, nasty lawnmowers to nearly zero for several months. Then my landlord’s husband (my grandfather) came over to borrow something. He lectured me on the necessity of mowing the lawn/yard and required me to do so posthaste. So, now I’m scheming up a retrofit to my lawnmower that will use a small electric motor to power the blade or some sort of weed-whacker assembly.
