It is nice .. LOL Mine is aweful right now I need to mow. I have the battery on the charger and will try later to get it done. It usually takes about 3 hours to mow the whole thing! on the rider mower, then I have to get someone to do the triming because I can't handle the weed eater these days.. Hurts my arm.

I would never have a problem with a garden your size. My yard is 2 acres.. It is a lot to do by myself. So it is getting overgrown. I will be lucky if when the battery goes back on today that I will be able to start it up! I hope so!

Wow.. It is a jungle you have back there!

Up to your waste.. 2 acres..

When ours is really grown, its about up to our ankle, and if we do the front and back garden, we get 3-4 big black bags.. And that land doesnt even make 1 acre..

If your garden is up to your waste with 2 acres of it.. I think you'll have around 15-20 black bags!

I put it in the back part of me property in a compost pile you know, straw dirt grass leaves raw vegetables uncooked food.. Then turn it regularly until you have nice black dirt!

A few weeks if you keep at it, sometimes longer if the pile starts out really big..You can add shredded news paper also..cardboard also decomposes nicely in the pile!

Does the newspaper help with the decomposing, or it is a good compost?

I do not put protein like meats in .. egg shells are good but no yolks..No cooked vegetables either as these tend to attract rats.. If you keep it to the other you can have a healty pile no rats!

Mmm I see.. We don't even get bats around here! Or I don't think so.. Maybe hedgehogs in the winter, when the fireworks are around and that.. And a few foxes on roads now and then.. And squirrels in back yard. But apart from that, and cats and dogs and birds, not much around!
