>>How long would you estimate that it would take to use the old fashioned non-power mowers for two acres?

Well, let's see. The orchard on the hill is over two acres, some of it rather inclined. With a gas mower it takes me about an hour and a half.

I would estimate no more than three hours. Good exercise. Sunlight. The pause that refreshes. (Always liked the idea of someone bringing me a large glass of lemonade while mowing.) No need to go to a gym.

Have inherited one of those grim-reaper scythes, and may give it a shot next summer.
