Dear Forum Members,
I was looking through my cherished late Granny's much-loved gardening book which some of you may still have in your possession - "The Complete Book of Gardening" by J. Coutts et al. The following made me laugh so much I nearly split my sides. Maybe it's just me. See below:
"Mowing Machines: There are many good mowing machines on the market, all designed on one of two principles, and ranging in size from very light models that cut a strip of grass eight inches in width and which can easily be pushed by a woman, to the heavy machines with iron rollers driven by a motor grrrr!, and which cut a width of a yard or more at a time."
Oh well, it was published in 1954!!
